Tottenham chairman Levy adds Wolves boss Nuno to shortlist

Wolves boss Nuno is on the radar of Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy.

The Daily Express says Levy is a major fan of the charismatic Wolves manager, who led the club out of the Championship three years ago and has taken them to the Europa League quarter-finals and two seventh-placed Premier League finishes.

Nuno signed a new deal at Wolves in September tying him to the club until 2023 - but has been linked with a move to Arsenal.

The former Valencia and Porto coach, now 47, has seen his team dip in form this season as injuries have struck, but are currently lying twelfth in the Premier league table, safe from any relegation fears.

Jose Mourinho is under mounting pressure at Tottenham, after Sunday's 3-1 defeat by Manchester United left them lying six points outside the Champions League places - and three away from the Europa League qualification slots.

Spurs can still get into Europe if they lift the Carabao Cup by beating Manchester City at Wembley on Sunday week, but even then they would only be in the Europa League.

Spurs have seven league games left - and qualification for Europe's major competitions will have a major bearing on whether Levy decides to stick with Mourinho.
