Tottenham will have RB Leipzig coach Julian Nagelsmann at the top of their list if José Mourinho is sacked as manager, according to The Telegraph.


Pressure is mounting on Mourinho after he has won just one of his last six Premier League games in charge.

And should the 58-year-old fail to save his job, Nagelsmann is apparently seen as the ideal replacement.

Nagelsmann's Leipzig side knocked Tottenham out of the Champions League last season, winning their last 16 tie comfortably by 4-0 on aggregate.

The higly-rated 33-year-old old coach joined RB Leipzig from Hoffenheim in 2019 and is still under contract until 2023.
