Former-Barcelona B coach Luis Enrique is the latest name to be linked with the Tottenham hot-seat as the pressure mounts on Andre Villas-Boas.
The Daily Mail report claims Enrique will be Tottenham's first-choice to replace Villas-Boas if Spurs chairman Daniel Levy opts to make a change.
The former-Barcelona midfielder managed the B team at the Nou Camp and was being lined up to replace Pep Guardiola as the main man.
But Enrique quit for Roma in Serie A although he endured a difficult campaign in the Italian capital and left after a single year. But he remains on good terms with former-Roma director of football Franco Baldini, who now works for Spurs in the same role.
Enrique has since returned to Spain with Celta Vigo, but his commitment to an attacking brand of football is thought to have interested the Spurs hierarchy.
His background at Barcelona lends his CV weight, and in contrast to Villas-Boas's naturally cautious reflex, his attacking philosophy would be welcomed at White Hart Lane.
Swansea boss Michael Laudrup is thought to be second choice.
The report claims Levy and Spurs owner Joe Lewis are becoming increasingly worried as the club drops down the Premier League table.
They currently sit ninth, but Lewis and Levy expected a greater return on their investment having strengthened the squad to the tune of £107m of spending over the summer.
The 6-0 humiliation at the hands of Manchester City, coming off the back of a home defeat to Newcastle, has left Villas-Boas facing questions over his future.
