Swansea are yet to hit the soaring heights of last season, possibly giving Michael Laudrup a reason to trade the humble Liberty Stadium for the expanses of White Hart Lane.
It is incredibly unlikely Laudrup sees himself managing Swansea his entire career, and a move up the hierarchy of football may be the required career progression for the Real Madrid legend.
A prime example of such a move is Laudrup's predecessor, Brendan Rodgers, whom Liverpool are currently thriving under.
A similar move from Swansea to Tottenham will pay dividends for Laudrup, who will look to establish the Spurs as title contenders, and Tottenham themselves, who will find themselves with a fine young tactician who has proven to be an astute investor in the transfer market.
Detractors will point to Laudrup's contract extension earlier this year in March only days after winning the Capital One Cup with a £5million release clause, almost identical to the figure Brendan Rodgers had attached to his contract extension with Swansea only four months before he signed with Liverpool.
