Tottenham have joined Manchester United and Barcelona in the race to land Borussia Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp.

The Sun suggests Tottenham have entered the running to entice Klopp away from Dortmund at the end of the season as Daniel Levy has promoted the German tactician to the top of his managerial wish-list.

Reports had claimed that Levy had pretty much tied up a deal to hand Louis van Gaal the reins at White Hart Lane.

However a deal has not yet been concluded - as Van Gaal reportedly wants to bide his time in hope that Manchester United come in for him if they are to sack David Moyes.

Klopp could decide to leave Dortmund at the end of the season due to Bayern Munich's sheer dominance in the Bundesliga.

The 46-year-old may also decide to end his stint at the Westfalenstadion as he is losing another first-team star - in the form of Robert Lewandowski - to Bayern Munich.

Levy would have to shell out in the region of £20million to appoint Klopp as manager as the German has only recently signed a new long-term contract to stay at the Bundesliga outfit.

However Levy is thought to be prepared to pay such a hefty fee to land one of the world's best coaches and beat off stiff competition from Premier League rivals Manchester United and Barcelona.
