Spurs' new director of football Fabio Paratici is leading the search for a new boss after talks with Antonio Conte, Paulo Fonseca and Gennaro Gattuso broke down, and according to

, the Portuguese has now emerged as a strong contender as the club has entered advanced negotiations over a potential summer deal.
