Former Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas is wanted by Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy.
The Sun says Villas-Boas is emerging as a strong contender to replace Harry Redknapp, along with Spurs legend Jurgen Klinsmann and Wigan's Roberto Martinez.
Levy's No 1 target Villas-Boas also worked with a technical director at Chelsea.
Michael Emenalo was appointed at virtually the same time as the Portuguese was unveiled at Stamford Bridge in July 2011.
