Former Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel would be interested in replacing Antonio Conte as Tottenham manager, according to Evening Standard.

Tuchel was sacked as Chelsea boss in September and replaced with Graham Potter.

The German tactician still remains popular among Chelsea fans after guiding the Blues to success in the Champions League in his first season in charge of Chelsea.

Tuchel is understood to be keen on working in the Premier League again but has been biding his time and waiting for the ideal opportunity.

Tuchel see Spurs as the ideal fit should an opportunity arise in the near future, despite his Chelsea allegiances.

Conte, who earns £15million-a-year, is reportedly under pressure at Tottenham Hotspur with the team failing to improve under him despite having been backed to the tune of over £100m in the summer.
