TOTTENHAM could have a new man in the dugout by the beginning of next season which will spark a big change on the pitch.
Current boss Jose Mourinho is under increasing pressure with his side dropping to ninth in the Premier League.
Finishing outside of a European spot could seal his fate with speculation owner Daniel Levy already eyeing alternatives.
And reports claim he could target the hugely-talented RB Leipzig boss Julian Nagelsmann.
The 33-year-old is building a reputation as one of the best upcoming managers in world football following his impressive stints both with RB Leipzig and former club Hoffenheim.
If Levy does pull the trigger on Mourinho and appoint Nagelsmann, he is likely to raid his former club.
Spurs need at least three players to build a squad with the quality to challenge their rivals at the top.
Nick Pope could be one of the new arrivals between the sticks with Hugo Lloris’ future in doubt.
The Frenchman will have a year left on his contract in the summer and is being linked for a reunion with Mauricio Pochettino at Paris Saint-Germain.
Nagelsmann is likely to target a new centre-back and could raid his current crop to land Ibrahima Konate.
The 21-year-old centre-back has been a fringe player this season but is expected to rise to the very top.
Nagelsmann could also add his trustee midfielders to Tottenham’s ranks in Dominic Szoboszlai and Marcel Sabitzer.
Sabitzer, a 26-year-old Austrian international, has featured 27 times this season in the heart of the field.
He has a contract until 2022 and could be allowed to leave on the cheap to avoid losing him for nothing at the end of next season.
Playing just ahead of him in a more attacking role could be Szoboszlai.
The 20-year-old, who plays as an attacking midfielder or on the left, is tipped for a bright future.
Nagelsmann will also need to address the shortage of quality on the right flank.
With Gareth Bale seemingly heading back to Real Madrid, Spurs may turn their attentions to Angel Di Maria.
The Argentine’s contract at PSG expires in the summer and he may fancy another crack of the whip in the Premier League after flopping at Manchester United.
