Premier League side Tottenham is in advanced talks to appoint former Roma manager Paulo Fonseca as their new head coach.
Fonseca, who left Roma towards the end of the season will sign a three-year deal but nothing is yet agreed. Fabio Paratici has been involved in the process and is due to be announced soon as the club's new director of football.
Spurs have turned to Fonseca after their plans to appoint Antonio Conte as Jose Mourinho's replacement collapsed last week following a breakdown in negotiations with the Italian.
The club also tried to lure Paris Saint-Germain boss Mauricio Pochettino back to north London a year and a half after his sacking but were unsuccessful.
