Wolves man at the door should Mourinho exit Tottenham

Spurs chief eyes move for Nuno Espirito Santo, while Bayern play Haaland waiting game.

SOCCER: Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo is being eyed by Tottenham amid uncertainty surrounding the future of Jose Mourinho.

Spurs find themselves six points behind West Ham in fourth with seven Premier League games remaining.

And, despite the prospect of a trophy in the Carabao Cup final, only Champions League soccer looks set to save Mourinho.

Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy is said to be an admirer of Nuno, according to the Daily Mirror.

Nuno led his side to promotion in 2018 before securing successive seventh place finishes.

The Portuguese is under contract at Molineux until 2023 but has consistently been linked with moves away.

He has shortened to 14/1 with Sky Bet to succeed Mourinho.

Tottenham have also been linked with Leicester City's Brendan Rodgers and Julian Nagelsmann at RB Leipzig.

Nagelsmann is 5/2 favourite to be handed the Tottenham role, with Rodgers a 16/1 chance.

Bayern biding their time for Haaland deal

SOCCER: Another day, another Erling Haaland story.

This time it is from the Daily Mail, who claim Bayern Munich are confident they will land Haaland next summer - if he spends one more season at Borussia Dortmund.

Dortmund insist they have no plans to sell the 20-year-old.

Nevertheless, their resolve is set to be tested with offers in excess of £100m anticipated at the end of the campaign.

Manchester City are 11/8 favourites with Sky Bet to land the forward in the summer, while Real Madrid (5/2) and Barcelona (7/2) remain keen.

However, in the summer of 2022 a clause in Haaland's contract means he will be available for around £65million.

And the Daily Mail says "Bayern believe they can win the race for him under those circumstances".

The German giants, who are 25/1 to sign Haaland in the next window, are seeking a long-term heir to Robert Lewandowski, who turns 33 in August.

Wijnaldum is not going anywhere - yet

SOCCER: Gini Wijnaldum has given Liverpool hope of him staying at Anfield beyond the summer when his contract expires, according to the Daily Telegraph.

The midfielder is a target for both Barcelona and Inter Milan and had looked set to leave on a free transfer.

The 30-year-old is looking for one last big pay-day but with no pre-contract having been announced and soccer's finances having been hit by COVID-19, there remains an outside chance of Wijnaldum remaining with the Reds, says Mike McGrath.

It looks wishful thinking on Liverpool fans' part with Wijnaldum as short as 1/6 with Sky Bet to move to Barcelona in the summer.

A move to Inter is priced at 8/1.
