Thomas Frank could be next Tottenham boss amid 'incredible' claim - expert

Alan Hutton has suggested Thomas Frank could be tempted by the manager’s job at Tottenham.

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former Spurs right-back also cited Roberto de Zerbi and Graham Potter as potential candidates to succeed Antonio Conte.

The Lilywhites are being led by Ryan Mason after sacking Conte and then first choice caretaker boss and Conte’s number two Cristian Stellini.

On Sunday (14 May), Football Insider revealed that Spurs plan to recruit a new director of football before appointing a new manager.

The London club have a vacancy in the role after Fabio Paratici resigned due to his 30-month ban for his involvement in Juventus’ financial scandal.

Chairman Daniel Levy is now pushing to appoint a new director before the end of the season.

The club are also on the hunt for a new manager and have already ruled out leading contender Julian Nagelsmann.

According to talkSPORT (15 May), Brentford boss Thomas Frank is admired by Levy and the Bees are bracing themselves for interest in their boss from the North London club.

When asked if Frank could be tempted away from the Gtech Community Stadium, Hutton told Football Insider:You never know, money talks at the end of the day.

He has done an incredible job but there are others out there. De Zerbi, for talking’s sake, Graham Potter is still out there, could he do a job?

The problem is I just do not know what direction they are going in. Do they want an expansive, attacking manager, young with fresh ideas. Are they going to go for someone with experience who has been there and done it before?

They are just a little bit all over the place.
