Nuno Espirito Santo is the leading candidate to become the new head coach of Tottenham, according to reports.
Fabio Paratici, Tottenham's new director of football, is said to have a good relationship with Nuno's agent Jorge Mendes.
Nuno left Wolves at the end of the 2020/21 campaign after four seasons by mutual consent and has been linked to the managerial vacancies at Everton and Crystal Palace.

The 47-year-old held talks with Palace, but negotiations broke down as the south London club pursued Lucien Favre instead, who has decided against signing a three-year contract at the last minute.
Nuno achieved promotion to the Premier League with Wolves and secured seventh-placed finishes in his first two seasons in England's top flight. Wolves finished last season in 13th.
