TOTTENHAM could have a whole new look next season if they land Arne Slot from Feyenoord.
Slot, 44, emerged as a leading contender for the Spurs manager’s job after leading the Dutch club to a surprise Eredivisie title.

SunSport revealed this week that Feyenoord plan to give Slot a hefty pay rise AND back him in the transfer market ahead of next season’s Champions League campaign.
But whatever they offer will be dwarfed by the cash the London club can put on the table if they go for the ex-AZ Alkmaar gaffer.
And Daniel Levy is also set to back him in the transfer market.
We previously revealed how Spurs want to snap up England No 1 Jordan Pickford — despite Everton tying him down to a new 4½-year contract.
The North London club are preparing to change their goalkeeper in the summer with 36-year-old skipper Hugo Lloris’ days numbered.
And Pickford is STILL their first choice even after committing to his long Goodison deal.
Pickford’s value will depend on what happens with Everton at the end of the season.
If they are relegated, there is an agreement that he can be sold.
Pickford’s price would be lower as a Championship player but the Toffees would still want around £35million — although that could be haggled down.
We also reported how James Maddison is set to leave Leicester City even if they survive in the Premier League.
Maddison is also about to enter the final 12 months of his contract, which means this is the last opportunity for Leicester to cash-in rather than risk losing him for nothing next year when his deal expires.
Spurs are one of the clubs battling to sign the attacker.
And there is no doubt that Slot would love to have both Three Lions stars among his ranks next term if he were to take charge.
Meanwhile, the Daily Express are also claiming that Slot could raid a number of other relegated clubs to help his Tottenham rebuild.
Southampton are preparing for life in the Championship but midfielder Romeo Lavia looks certain to be one of the players to leave, with this report stating that “Spurs should definitely be involved” in the chase to sign him.
Meanwhile, Saints defender Armel Bella-Kotchap is another being linked.
The 21-year-old has struggled with injuries this season but the German ace has shone during his limited outings.
Leeds United are also facing a fight to stay in the top-flight.
The Express claims that their 19-year-old forward Wilfried Gnonto is also on Spurs’ radar.
And if Slot does get the green light to make a move for the above men, then long-suffering supporters could have an exciting new-look young side to cheer on next term – especially if they manage to hang on to club-record scorer Harry Kane to lead the attack.
