'Fantastic' title-winning boss tipped to shine in the Premier League, Spurs and Everton reportedly want him
Spurs and Everton are reportedly eyeing Christophe Galtier.
Tottenham remain in pursuit of a new permanent manager in wake of Jose Mourinho’s sacking.
Meanwhile, the Toffees are on the lookout for a new man in the dugout after Carlo Ancelotti rejoined Real Madrid.
According to Sky Sports, the Goodison hierarchy has been informed about Galtier as they search for Ancelotti’s replacement.
The 54-year-old is arguably one of the best free agents in the game right now.
Galtier recently masterminded an incredible Ligue 1 title triumph for Lille before leaving the club.
He led Les Dogues to their fourth French top-flight title and first in a decade as they finished one point above Paris Saint-Germain.
“I am quite simply convinced that I have done my time here, that this four-year cycle is long enough for a coach,” Galtier told L’Equipe.
“Having done four years, I feel inside that it’s time to leave this beautiful club, this magnificent club.
“I’m leaving Lille with an incredible result, I need something else. I don’t want to fall into a routine.”
Former Lille sporting director Luis Campos worked with Galtier at the French champions.
“Christophe has all the qualities to coach in England,” Campos told Sky Sports.
“Technically he is very astute and is extremely detailed in his planning when preparing a team.
“He likes a 4-4-2 system, which would fit with the Premier League and he is a fantastic motivator in the dressing room.
“He likes to build a side with quality and youth, he is someone that can develop a team ethic, and he is also a fantastic human being.”

Galtier would be a top choice for Spurs and Everton, a manager who;d certainly tick a lot of boxes for both Premier League clubs.
As well as having won a title and being a free agent, players really like and admire him.
Nicolas Pepe, now at Arsenal, sung his praises when the two were both at Lille.
“We have a great manager, in the image of his tactics that worked tonight,” he told Canal+, via GFFN, after a 5-1 win over PSG two years ago.
“Everyday he is there for us, whether it is in terms of football or outside of football, he is a coach who adds a lot from the human side of things too.”
