Tottenham Hotspur will be hoping that Aston Villa lose to Brighton and Hove Albion on Sunday if they are to stand any chance of qualifying for Europe next term. 

The Lilywhites currently sit eighth in the Premier League table, a point behind the Villans who currently occupy the final European qualification spot.

Spurs face struggling Leeds United on the final day, and the Whites will likely provide a stern test as they battle to keep their place in the top flight.

In the meantime, it appears that the north London outfit could target a recently-sacked Premier League boss as they look for a new permanent manager.

According to Football Insider, Spurs could look to ex-Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers following the news that Feyenoord boss Arne Slot has snubbed the club.

The Dutchman had been heavily linked with the vacant role, but it has now emerged that he has declined the opportunity and is set to stay put in Rotterdam.

Postecoglou is reportedly being considered for the vacant managerial role at Tottenham

The Premier League side are therefore considering Rodgers, who was dismissed from his role with the Foxes earlier this season.

Tottenham have been without a permanent manager since Antonio Conte was sacked in March, and his temporary successor Cristian Stellini was them dismissed the following month.

Ryan Mason is currently in interim charge of the club, but the ex-midfielder is set to leave at the end of the current season.

It is also claimed that chairman Daniel Levy is considering an audacious move for current Celtic boss Ange Postecoglou.

The Australian guided Celtic to the Scottish Premiership title for a second successive season earlier this month, but it appears that Tottenham could now be circling.

The 57-year-old is said to have a relatively low release clause included in his current 12-month rolling contract, which could make him an easier appointment than some other candidates.

Postecoglou has won a remarkable 81 of his 111 matches in charge across all competitions, and he has the chance to complete a domestic treble when his side take on Inverness Caledonian Thistle in the Scottish Cup final in June.
