Next Spurs manager: Report claims Tottenham give serious thought to targeting 46-year-old

Spurs have been giving serious thought to the prospect of targeting Graham Potter this week, according to the Daily Mail, as they continue their search for their next manager.

Understandably, Tottenham fans have been frustrated for some time over the wait for Jose Mourinho’s successor to be appointed.

And as every false dawn passes, the frustration probably makes way for anxiety as the pool of managers seemingly available becomes smaller.

It was reported earlier this week that the club have once again set their sights on Nuno Espirito Santo.

In fact, the Daily Mail also suggests that the former Wolves man is the leading candidate for the post.

But that appears to have come about after the club gave serious thought this week to targeting Potter.

Potter has long been linked with the post. However, it did seem that talk of the Brighton boss getting the gig had gone quiet in more recent times.

Admittedly, Potter is not the kind of high-profile name Tottenham fans may have been hoping for.

And Brighton did struggle for much of last season. But given the problems Spurs have had, surely he would not be the worst choice.

The Seagulls have tended to play an exciting brand of football during his time in charge.

And there is a sense that they could achieve a lot more should he stay. They would have surely flown up the table with a slightly more ruthless goalscorer.

It would probably not be the most exciting choice. And it seems that Nuno is preferred in North London anyway.

But surely, Spurs have taken a very smart decision in giving serious thought to turning to Potter as the search drags on.
