Tottenham Hotspur have interest in hiring Erik ten Hag as manager and plan to meet with him once Ajax wraps up the Eredivisie title.

Although nothing is agreed as yet and Spurs have other candidates, including Ralf Rangnick, Ten Hag is understood to be open to listening to their proposal.

Spurs had wanted Julian Nagelsmann to become the permanent successor to José Mourinho, who they sacked last week, only for Bayern to secure him as the successor to Hansi Flick.

Ten Hag is committed to front-foot football and has brought through many young players.
