RB Leipzig boss Nagelsmann emerging as favourite for Spurs job

RB Leipzig boss Julian Nagelsmann is emerging as favourite to take over at Tottenham after the sacking of Jose Mourinho.

Tottenham have been long-term admirers of Nagelsmann, who is widely deemed as one of the most talented young coaches in world football, says the Daily Mail.

It is believed that Naglesmann, who is only 33, was under consideration for the Spurs hotseat after Pochettino's departure in 2019, although Mourinho was later handed the job.

Leipzig will not allow Nagelsmann to leave this summer, however, without receiving a compensation package worth £17m.

Former Manchester United and Real Madrid coach Mourinho's last game in charge at Tottenham came in the 2-2 draw against Everton on Friday.
