Tottenham ‘weigh up move for transfer guru’ and it could reveal who the favourite for vacant manager job is

TOTTENHAM are weighing up a move for former Bayer Leverkusen transfer chief Tim Steidten, according to reports.

Steidten has been out of work since leaving the Bundesliga outfit in March.

And now Spurs are considering a move for the 44-year-old, according to the Evening Standard.

However, face-to-face talks are yet to be held between him and chairman Daniel Levy.

Steidten joined Leverkusen as chief scout in 2019, but was promoted to the role of sporting director last July.

In his role he was responsible for bringing in a number of young exciting talents, namely Jeremie Frimpong, Piero Hincapie and Edmond Tapsoba.

His time at the club also saw the appointment of Xabi Alonso, who has been linked with Tottenham‘s vacant managerial job.

This has inevitably sparked rumours of the pair reuniting in England.

Steidten is not the only person linked with the position, with Spurs also reportedly considering Roma‘s Tiago Pinto and Brentford‘s Lee Dykes.

Whoever comes into the position will report to new chief football officer Scott Munn, who will effectively become Levy’s No2 after his gardening leave from City Football Group ends.


The North London side are in the market for a new sporting director after Fabio Paratici left due to the fallout from Serie A‘s latest transfer scandal.

The Italian was handed a 30-month suspension from the game in January after an Italian court found former club Juventus guilty of false accounting.

Paratici saw his appeal partially accepted, but only saw his ban scaled down.

Tottenham have endured a difficult season, and find themselves desperately clinging on to the the final European football spot the Premier League has to offer.
