Tottenham Hotspur are considering an approach for Sporting Lisbon manager Leonardo Jardim who has also been linked with replacing Claudio Ranieri at AS Monaco.
According to talkSPORT, the 39-year-old has been sounded out as a potential successor to Tim Sherwood, as Daniel Levy continues his search for a new head coach to take over in north London this summer.
Jardim is one of the most highly-rated coaches in Portugal at the moment, and Levy has been unperturbed by recent experiences with former Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas, so plans to approach the Primeira Liga outfit about his availability.
Portuguese newspaper A Bola is reporting that Monaco have already made an offer to Jardim though, meaning that Tottenham will have to move quickly if they are serious about luring the tactician to White Hart Lane ahead of the 2014/15 campaign.
Sporting president Bruno De Carvalho has a meeting planned with his first-team manager next week, and alleged interest from Spurs and Monaco is likely to be high on the agenda for discussion between the two parties.
Sherwood, meanwhile, still has 12 months to run on the 18-month contract handed to him back in December, but it's widely anticipated that he will leave Tottenham at the end of the season.
