Report: 54-year-old fancies Premier League move amid Spurs links, he's a truly 'great' manager

Reported Tottenham Hotspur target Christophe Galtier is reportedly eager to manage in the Premier League, according to ESPN.

Spurs remain in pursuit of a new permanent manager in wake of Jose Mourinho’s sacking last month.

Several top coaches have been linked with the Spurs reins and, according to an Evening Standard report from April, the Lille head coach is a contender.

The 54-year-old has turned his club into Ligue 1 title contenders over the past few seasons.

Indeed, they sit three points clear of Paris Saint-Germain at the top of the table with two games left to play.

Galtier’s contract expires at the end of the season and ESPN speculates that he could walk away from his current role.

The outlet also cites sources claiming that he is keen to manage in England.

Galtier has worked wonders at Lille and to have them top of the table despite PSG having the players they have is quite some feat, especially if they do go all the way.

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.”

A top manager who’s close to a Ligue 1 title, loved by his players, makes the most of his resources and is set to become a free agent – sounds like a great shout for Spurs.
