According to a report from Il Messaggero (as relayed by TBR Football), Maurizio Sarri is stalling on Lazio’s offer as he is eyeing the Tottenham job, writes the SpursWeb.
With Tottenham calling off their talks with Antonio Conte, it remains to be seen what the North London club’s next course of action will be.
Some sources have suggested that the Conte deal could still potentially be on while other reports have claimed that Erik Ten Hag and Roberto Martinez could now be the leading targets.
Sarri, who was previously mentioned as a potential target for Spurs, now seems as though he could be back in the running.
Il Messaggero reveal that the former Chelsea boss has all but agreed to become Lazio’s next head coach but is now stalling after learning about the breakdown in talks between Tottenham and Conte.
That suggests that the 62-year-old believes he stands a chance of getting the Spurs job.
