Former Chelsea and Inter Milan coach Antonio Conte has been touted as the strongest candidate for the vacant Tottenham Hotspur manager job, the BBC reported on Thursday (06/03/2021).

It is understandable that the Italian coach is being linked with various European clubs after stepping down from Inter Milan as the Italian champions has progressed rapidly.

Rumors are growing that Conte will replace Jose Mourinho as Tottenham coach.

Spurs were in contact with their former coach, Mauricio Pochettino last week, but PSG insist they will not allow the Argentinian to leave.

Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy is unlikely to let the situation continue for too long, and will have to appoint a new manager.

Spurs have been without a permanent coach since Mourinho's departure on April 19.

Levy said the club had "lost several key priorities" during the construction of the new stadium and the COVID-19 pandemic.

Spurs finished seventh in the English Premier League last season, and qualified for the new European Conference League.

Their talisman striker Harry Kane said he hoped to have a "good and honest conversation" with Levy about his future, amid reports that he has officially asked to leave.

Meanwhile, Conte won the Premier League in his first season as Chelsea coach in 2016-17, but was sacked at the end of the following season when he won the FA Cup after finishing fifth.

The 51-year-old coach led Inter to the Europa League final in 2019-20 and was just one point adrift of Italian champions Juventus - who were 21 points clear the previous season.

Inter claimed their 19th Scudetto with four games remaining last season, with 91 points, or the second highest in the club's history, as reported by Antara.
