Tottenham Hotspur reportedly hope to meet Julian Nagelsmann for talks about replacing Antonio Conte as head coach. The 35-year-old is set to be sacked by Bayern Munich, and details about his private affinity with Spurs could significantly boost the club’s hopes of securing their latest boss.

According to the Telegraph, Tottenham will aim to reignite their interest in Nagelsmann after targeting him to succeed Jose Mourinho in 2021.

On that occasion, Bayern pipped them to the post, but he’s now leaving Bavaria less than two years later, despite the German giants’ season being far from catastrophe.

The report claims that Nagelsmann is privately fond of Spurs and owns a replica shirt, which could bode well for attempts to lure him to north London.

His Bayern exit was sudden and was something he learned about while on a skiing holiday before visiting the club for confirmation on Friday.

German compatriot Thomas Tuchel will replace him at the Allianz Stadium, returning to work after his Chelsea sack earlier this season.

He guided the Blues to Champions League glory after replacing Frank Lampard midway through the 2021/22 season.

And Bayern will hope he can have the same effect ahead of their quarter-final tie against Manchester City and a potential semi-final against holders Real Madrid or his former club, Chelsea.

Tottenham exited the Champions League last 16 to AC Milan, leaving them trophyless for a 15th year and with only a top-four spot to fight for.

Reports earlier this week stated that Conte was expected to be dismissed during the international break after publicly slamming the Lilywhites and his players after Saturday’s 3-3 collapse at Southampton.

And it’s claimed that the Italian coach hasn’t yet returned to Tottenham training, with Ryan Mason and Cristian Stellini taking sessions in his absence.

Mason was reportedly preparing to take interim charge of Spurs for the remainder of the season after Conte’s departure.

But Nagelsmann’s sudden availability has seemingly prompted Daniel Levy to take action in a rare move that would be popular among supporters.

Tottenham players representing their countries this week will return to training from Monday.

With an important game against Everton next weekend, fans and the squad will want clarity from Levy over the immediate and next steps regarding their head coach.
