Tottenham are making a new pitch to Juventus talent guru Fabio Paratici.
Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is eager to find a new, experienced technical director and has been undergoing a search since the end of last season.
An offer was made - and rejected - to Paratici at the beginning of the summer market, but Levy hasn't shelved his pursuit.
Calciomercato.com says the pair have maintained contact and Levy is expected to try again in the coming weeks.
Juve GM Beppe Marotta has insisted he and Paratici are committed to the Bianconeri, though new contract talks are yet to be initiated by the board.
