Andre Villas-Boas came under pressure following Tottenham's 6-0 humiliation at the hands of Manchester City last month, with a host of managers linked to the role.
And despite a return upturn in results - they've won back-to-back games against Sunderland and Fulham - the report claims Villas-Boas's relationship with chairman Daniel Levy has deteriorated significantly.
Spurs aggressively reinvested the money received from Real Madrid for Gareth Bale, bringing in the likes of Erik Lamela, Roberto Soldado and Paulinho.
And Levy reportedly expects more from the squad, with some pundits tipping a potential title challenge for Tottenham this season.
That hasn't materialised however, with Spurs currently positioned sixth in the Premier League table.
Still, Villas-Boas has guided the club to one of their best ever starts, and they're just two points off a place in the top four that would guarantee them Champions League qualification next season.
Maradona's managerial record can be described as patchy at best. The Argentinian legend is without a club since leaving UAE-based side Al Wasl in July 2012.
His only high profile position was his two-year stint as manager of the Argentina national team between 2008 and 2010.
He guided them to the quarter-finals, before they were taken apart 4-0 by Germany.
