Thomas Tuchel 'interested' in Tottenham job if Antonio Conte leaves, it would be a huge plot twist

Thomas Tuchel 'interested' in Tottenham job if Antonio Conte leaves, it would be a huge plot twist

Former Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel would be open to an offer from Spurs if Antonio Conte leaves the club, according to reports.

It was reported this week that Conte's position at the North London club is "increasingly uncertain" following a poor spell of form in the league. Spurs have won just three of their previous nine Premier League games.

And following their most recent 2-0 defeat to Arsenal in Sunday's derby – a game that highlighted their lack of attacking prowess – rumours over a possible exit have only intensified in recent days.

Conte has yet to commit his future to Spurs, although the club have the option to extend his deal by 12 months at the end of the season.

That being said, Sportsmail claim it would be “self-defeating” for the club to trigger his one-year extension “if their visions for the club are not aligned”.

So with his future in doubt, who would replace the experienced manager?

It may come as a surprise to many, but former Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel would be interested in taking over at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium if Conte departs.

The 49-year-old has been out of work since September last year after he was sacked by Chelsea following their 1-0 defeat to Dinamo Zagreb.

Chelsea co-owner Todd Boehly went on to claim the German was sacked because they did not "share a vision" for the club’s future.

"It wasn’t a decision that was made as a result of a single win or loss," Boehly said at the SALT Conference in New York in September. "It was a decision that was made really about what we thought was the right vision for the club."

Tuchel has since enjoyed a break from football following his sacking, but he is ready to listen to to proposals from leading clubs, according to the report.

The 49-year-old former Borussia Dortmund manager is not in talks with any potential suitors at present, but he is also understood to be learning a new language which could point towards his next destination.

Back in December, German publication Sportbild claimed Tuchel has "left England as a residence", with reports also suggesting he was learning Spanish amid rumours of a potential move to La Liga.
