Tottenham will make RB Leipzig boss Julian Nagelsmann their number one target if Jose Mourinho fails to revive the club from their current slump, according to The Telegraph.
The current boss has overseen a run of five defeats in six games and now face a real fight to return to Europe next season.
Nagelsmann is fancied by the Tottenham hierarchy and the report claims he could be interested in a switch to join a Premier League club.
The 32-year-old is widely regarded as one of Europe’s top, young managers and last season his team knocked Tottenham out of the Champions League.
Leipzig enjoyed a run to the semi-final before going out to PSG. This season Nagelsmann’s team have it all to do as they trail Liverpool 2-0 after a first-leg defeat.
The youngster has enjoyed a decent start to life in management and the style of football he plays has really caught the eye.
Following news that Tottenham fancy Nagelsmann if Mourinho were to leave, supporters have been reacting.
There are some mixed responses, with some welcoming the idea and others believing Mourinho should be given more time.
Here is what supporters are saying regarding the reports suggesting Nagelsmann has a possible target.
Levy will love him as it’s Poch 2.0 and he will be able to manipulate him and shaft him with no money to spend.

Imagine Nagelsmann trying to implement a high press with Ben Davies and Eric Dier😭😭

Nagelsmann is not the answer. Research it properly. If you want rid of Jose then get Rodgers which means waiting until end of season although he may want to stay for a CL season with Leicester. #thfc #coys

It’s clear from the comments that Spurs fans only watch Spurs & MOTD. Nagelsmann is the next Pep/Klopp. What he’s done with Hoffenheim & RB is amazing. He uses small budgets, maximises young players talents, exactly what Spurs need. Real & Barca want him. He’s too good for Spurs.

Not likely. Why join average old Spurs when bigger clubs like Real Madrid will be sniffing around.

Why are people deluded to think a different manager will solve things?
