Football Insider added that discussions have been held with Martinez and Rafael Benitez, and now they have dropped a major claim on when Levy could appoint Mourinho’s successor.

The Latest: Major claim emerges on timeframe

As per Football Insider, Spurs are now ‘closing in’ on a new manager after holding ‘extensive meetings’, with the north Londoners narrowing down their pool of candidates.

The list is said to be diverse and included names from all age brackets and across overseas, but Levy has apparently shortened it to the extent that a possible timeframe has emerged on appointing a new manager.

It is claimed that the club are ‘increasingly confident’ of hiring their replacement for Mourinho by the end of the current campaign, and this report estimates that it could possibly happen the week commencing May 24.

The Verdict: Great news for Spurs…

Precisely a week away, if this timeframe does come to fruition, it could be a big development in the race to be Tottenham’s next manager.

Whoever Spurs’ next boss may be, they will need plenty of time to come in and assess the squad whilst also being appointed before the summer transfer window begins. Indeed, they will surely want to shape the Spurs team in their own image and liaise with chairman Levy over incomings and outgoings.

As a result, this claim Tottenham are ‘closing in’ on a possible appointment by the end of this season should come as a big boost for the club and its supporters.
