Tottenham Hotspur have reportedly made RB Leipzig boss, Julian Nagelsmann their number one candidate to replace current incumbent, Jose Mourinho if he cannot arrest the club's slide and save his job.
Tottenham are currently struggling, having lost five out of the last six games with Mourinho currently leading the race to be sacked and the next 12 days will determine whether or not he will remain as Tottenham boss next season.
Tottenham first face Wolfsberger in the Europa League on Wednesday before league games against Burnley, Fulham and Crystal Palace. The Telegraph now reports that the club management have made contingency plans to replace Mourinho should he not be able to get the club's season back on track, with Nagelsmann topping the list of targets.
Nagelsmann, who is only 33 years old, is widely hailed as one of the best young managers in the world after guiding Leipzig to the Champions League semi-finals last season and was reported to have rejected an approach by Chelsea to become their next manager earlier this year, following the sacking of Frank Lampard.
It will be interesting to see how Mourinho's future pans out considering that he has led them to the final of the Carabao Cup and has a chance of leading the club to their first trophy in 13 years.
