Tottenham Hotspur will have to beat Leeds United on Sunday to have any chance of qualifying for European competition next term. 

Ryan Mason’s side have been in poor form of late, winning just one of their last seven Premier League matches.

Their poor run of results has seen Spurs drop out of the European qualification places ahead of their final match of the season, which means that the Lilywhites are relying on Aston Villa to fail to beat Brighton and Hove Albion if they are to qualify for Europe.

Mason, who stepped into take temporary charge of the club following Cristian Stellini’s sacking last month, will take charge of the club for the final time on Sunday, but it appears that Spurs could be close to appointing a new permanent boss.

As per Football Insider, the Lilywhites are in advanced talks with Feyenoord manager Arne Slot.

Tottenham are said to be confident of appointing the Dutchman as their new permanent boss this week, allowing Slot to take charge of the club before the summer.

Slot is reportedly set to become the new Tottenham manager

The 44-year-old is regarded as one of the best young managers in Europe at present having guided Feyenoord to the Eredivisie title this term.

Slot’s side have won 25 of their 33 league games so far and clinched the title by beating Go Ahead Eagles 3-0 earlier this month.

It is claimed that former AZ Alkmaar boss Slot has a £6 million release clause in his current contract with Feyenoord, although it is unclear whether or not Spurs have agreed to pay that sum.

The north London outfit had previously been linked with other top level coaches including Julian Nagelsmann and former manager Mauricio Pochettino, but it appears that Slot is set to become Antonio Conte’s permanent successor.

This season, Slot’s Feyenoord side have lost just one Dutch top flight game, and the 44-year-old guided the club to their first league title since 2017.
