Brighton manager Graham Potter would reportedly reject Tottenham if they approached him with an offer to replace Jose Mourinho.

The north London side are still looking to replace Jose Mourinho, who was sacked back in April and is heading to Roma next season. Former boss Mauricio Pochettino, who is currently at Paris Saint-Germain, and former Inter boss, Antonio Conte, were linked to the hot seat at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, but moves failed to materialize for either of them.

Spurs, who have been linked to Pochettino, Erik ten Hag, Brendan Rodgers, Julian Nagelsmann, Fonseca, Gennaro Gattuso, Julen Lopetegui, Nuno Espirito Santo, and now Potter, are in their third month of searching for a new manager.

However, according to the Daily Mail, who quote the Sun, Potter is holding out for a job at a top-four club, and hopes that he will eventually be approached by Manchester City or Liverpool.

The 46-year-old is contracted to Brighton until 2025, and the report adds that the Seagulls would demand compensation of £15million if he departs. Potter has been praised for the work he has done at Brighton, helping them finish 15th in his first campaign before ending up 16th last season.

According to The Guardian, new Tottenham sporting director Fabio Paratici is a huge admirer of the former Wolves' manager, Nuno, who left the club at the end of last season after a four-year stint at the Molineux Stadium.

The report adds that Spurs were not considering Nuno until Paratici's appointment, with the former Juventus official keen on bringing the Portuguese to the Serie A club before they eventually appointed club legend Andrea Pirlo as manager.
