Graham Potter’s arrival at Tottenham is ‘inevitable’ in the coming months, with Nuno’s job on the line.
Nuno Espirito Santo is already under fire at Tottenham Hotspur.
Tottenham are already on the lookout for a replacement for Nuno Espirito Santo, and have identified Graham Potter as a top target. Brighton, on the other hand, is not about to let their highly regarded coach go without a fight.
After a difficult start to the season, Tottenham have reportedly made an approach for Potter to replace Nuno as manager.
The Portuguese coach was hired over the summer after a lengthy search for a replacement for Jose Mourinho, who was fired in April.
Several managers were mentioned, including Antonio Conte, Erik ten Hag, and Brendan Rodgers, but Gennaro Gattuso was denied the job due to a fan outcry.
Nuno was eventually brought in after leaving Wolves at the end of the season, but the choice was not well received by fans.
Tottenham beat Manchester City 1-0 on the opening day of the season, giving him a fantastic start as a manager.
However, the team had a string of poor results, including conceding three goals in a row against Crystal Palace, Chelsea, and Arsenal.
The former Porto goalkeeper is now on thin ice in north London, with the club actively looking for a replacement.
Brighton manager Potter is being touted as the ideal candidate for the role, according to the Daily Star.
The ex-Swansea manager was touted as a possible successor to Mourinho, but nothing came of it.
The Seagulls wanted a £15 million compensation package, which Tottenham flatly refused.
They are, however, willing to reconsider their judgment and are currently preparing a ‘inevitable’ strategy for the following months.
Daniel Levy is a major supporter of the 46-year-old and believes he is one of Europe’s brightest young coaches, as do Brighton.
The south coast team has had a fantastic start to the season, currently sitting sixth in the Premier League.
Potter’s first two seasons at the Amex Stadium saw Brighton finish 15th and 16th, respectively, and he has a contract until 2025.
