Ajax Amsterdam coach Erik ten Hag (51) is Tottenham’s priority target to take control of the London team next season. A meeting between the two parties is to be held in the coming days.
Tottenham are already working for next season. Only seventh in the Premier League and defeated last weekend in the League Cup final against Manchester City, the Spurs must imperatively find their future strongman. Since the departure of José Mourinho, Ryan Mason has taken over the interim. But at the same time, the management of the London club is working to find a new coach. One name comes back with insistence in London: Erik ten Hag.
Ajax coach since 2017, the 51-year-old Dutchman is the priority for Spurs leaders, whom he is due to meet in the coming days. The English, who have formalized their interest with the technician, must now present their project and their offer to the coach. Erik ten Tag, who has a year-long contract with Ajax, still wants to be able to win the Eredivisie title before starting concrete negotiations with a club. The legendary Dutch club is well in the lead with 12 points ahead of PSV Eindhoven.>> The transfer window live
