legend Vincent Kompany is now ’s No.1 target as the quest to find their new manager continues.

The Italian manager was already expected to leave Spurs at the end of the season when his contract expired but the decision to end the relationship early came after .

Cristian Stellini and Ryan Mason are now in charge until the end of the season with the aim of finishing their side in the top four, with Tottenham currently fifth and just three points off Newcastle and Manchester United, albeit having played a game more.

In the meantime, Daniel Levy is on the hunt for a new permanent manager – his fifth in four years – with a wide variety of names on the shortlist including Julian Nagelsmann, Brendan Rodgers, Graham Potter and Mauricio Pochettino.

Another name touted was Kompany whose Burnley side have already won promotion to the Premier League and are on the verge of winning the Championship title.

And according to , the former Manchester City captain is now Levy’s first-choice to takeover at the .

It is said that Spurs’ chiefs have been ‘blown away’ by what the Belgian has achieved at Turf Moor in such a short space of time having only moved there last summer following three years at Anderlecht.

Not only has he brought Burnley back to the top-flight at the first time of asking but he has also transformed the Clarets’ style of play from Sean Dyche’s defensive tactics to exciting, attacking football, with his side scoring 78 goals in 40 games so far and losing just twice.

And despite all this success, it is rumored that Kompany could be tempted to leave the club as Burnley may not be able to offer the transfer funds he desires in the summer, something Tottenham could capitalise on.

Some do have concerns over the 37-year-old’s youth and experience however, but Levy and co. are willing to take a chance on Kompany as they look to replicate the success arch-rivals Arsenal have had since appointing Mikel Arteta.

Arteta had never managed before joining the Gunners in 2019, having previously served as Pep Guardiola’s assistant at City for three years, where he worked with Kompany, but after a slow start he is now well-placed to win Arsenal’s first league title since 2004.

While Levy works on securing his new manager, Tottenham’s run-in continues on Saturday when they host Bournemouth.
