Tottenham Hotspur is reportedly preparing to approach Feyenoord’s head coach, Arne Slot, to take over as the club’s new manager. This comes after Antonio Conte was sacked in March due to his heavy criticism of the club, its players, and Daniel Levy. Cristian Stellini was named as interim boss but was sacked six games later following a 6-1 defeat to Newcastle United. Ryan Mason has been in charge since then, and Levy has been working behind the scenes to appoint a new manager in time for the transfer window, which opens on June 10th.
Arne Slot took charge at Feyenoord in 2021 and guided the club to third place in the table during his debut season, as well as runners-up in the Europa Conference Final against Roma. This season, he won the title for only the second time this century, ahead of the likes of Ajax and PSV Eindhoven. After reportedly deciding against a move for Julian Nagelsmann, Spurs have decided to appoint Slot. The north Londoners are preparing a formal approach to Feyenoord, and they hope that Slot will be persuaded to move to the club. Feyenoord will play in the Champions League next season.
