<strong>Maurizio Sarri</strong>, the former Chelsea manager who most recently was at Juventus, has been linked with the vacant hot seat at Tottenham, reports the Daily Mail.

The paper says Spurs have been in touch with the Italian to offer the job from the start of next season.

It comes after Jose Mourinho was sacked this week, with the Portuguese said to be in the running to be named Celtic manager, according to the Sun. The Scottish side have been without a manager since Neil Lennon resigned in February.
