Tottenham Hotspur have chosen Louis van Gaal to be a potential candidate to replace Tim Sherwood at the end of the season, according to The Express.

Sherwood's side currently reside in fifth in the league and the Spurs boss is under pressure to achieve a top four place and qualify for the Champions League otherwise his job may be in jeopardy.

Daniel Levy sacked former boss Andre Villas-Boas in December, and held talks with Van Gaal before appointing Sherwood, but the Dutchman was not keen on taking on two managerial jobs at once.

Sherwood was given an 18-month contract at White Hart Lane but may be facing the axe this summer if a more reputable manager like Van Gaal can come in as a replacement.

Van Gaal has recently revealed his desire to leave the Netherlands national team after this year's World Cup in Brazil, and Spurs are looking to take advantage of the situation.

The Holland boss said to reporters: "Look at my CV. I have won a trophy every season during my club career.

"I am a winner and craving a trophy. This is why I am sick of being a national coach. I only see the players eight times a year. I am not enjoying the job of national coach at all.

"After the World Cup I want to coach a big club again and win trophies. Otherwise I will retire."
