Sacked Bayern Munich coach Julian Nagelsmann has already spoken about his admiration for the Premier League amid interest from Tottenham.
Sacked by Bayern Munich on Friday, the German manager is reportedly open to discussing a move to north London.
Spurs are setting out their plan to replace Antonio Conte, who remains at his family home in Italy as the uncertainty continues over his future.
Speaking to the Telegraph in February 2021, the then-RB Leipzig boss Nagelsmann expressed his interest in taking a Premier League job.
He said: “The Premier League is a very interesting league and I can imagine it could be a big aim to be a big manager in the Premier League one day, like Jurgen who is very successful.
“It could be a step in the future. But, you know, in soccer it's not that easy to plan, 'How long will you be a manager in Leipzig? When will you go to the Premier League?'.
“I could imagine going to the Premier League. I could imagine staying as a manager in the Bundesliga for my whole career. It's cool to be a manager in my own country. I love it. But then perhaps in the future we can meet face-to-face in the Premier League, who knows."
