Tottenham Hotspur will place Julian Nagelsmann at the top of a list of targets to replace head coach Jose Mourinho if the Portuguese cannot arrest the club’s dismal run of results and save his job. Nagelsmann is not thought to be prepared to leave RB Leipzig in mid-season, which may buy Mourinho time to turn things around, but the forthcoming fixtures against Wolfsberger in the Europa League, Burnley, Fulham and Crystal Palace could define his future if they go badly.

Jose Mourinho is running out of time to save his job as Tottenham Hotspur manager with the club already eyeing a replacement. Nagelsmann has also been linked with the Bayern Munich and Real Madrid jobs and Spurs will need to pay a hefty compensation fee in order to land him, in addition to the mammoth pay-off Mourinho will be due. The German’s attacking, adventurous football philosophy is likely to be a better fit for what Spurs fans crave, with Mourinho ’s more defensive and pragmatic approach frequently criticised .

José Mourinho's coaching chair begins to shake. The Portuguese urgently needs good results with Spurs in the coming weeks. The desired successor should already be chosen - and is none other than Julian Nagelsmann!

It's not going well at all at the Tottenham Hotspur . After just one win from the last five Premier League games, the Spurs have slipped to ninth place in the table. The targeted Champions League ranks are already nine points away.

West Ham up to fourth as troubled Spurs crash again

  West Ham up to fourth as troubled Spurs crash again West Ham moved into fourth in the Premier League with a 2-1 win against troubled Tottenham on Sunday that left their London rivals' top four bid in tatters. Jose Mourinho's side slumped to a fifth defeat in their last six league games as they paid the price for a sloppy defensive display at the London Stadium. Michail Antonio put West Ham in front early in the first half and Jesse Lingard doubled the hosts' advantage after the break.

Mourinho 's Tottenham are on a dire run, having lost five of their last six matches. Julian Nagelsmann will be Spurs' No 1 target if he can't turn their season around. Tottenham 's next four matches could be crucial in determining Mourinho 's fate. Contingency plans have already been drawn up to replace Mourinho should he fail to get their season back on track with RB Leipzig boss Nagelsmann topping the list of targets, according to The Telegraph. The German was approached by Chelsea last month to take over from the sacked Frank Lampard but rejected the offer - and is not prepared to leave Leipzig

Tottenham will make RB Leipzig boss Julian Nagelsmann their top target if they decide to sack Jose Mourinho , according to reports. The Special One is under increasing pressure with Spurs struggling in recent matches. Mourinho faces a crucial 12 days with fixtures against Wolfsberger in the Europa League, Burnley, Fulham and Crystal Palace which could define his future. For now, the former Manchester United manager crucially retains the support of Daniel Levy. Nagelsmann is not thought to be willing to leave RB Leipzig midway through the season which could give Mourinho more time.

It's logical that the criticism of José Mourinho is growing. However, the Portuguese does not want to take the blame for the sporting misery on himself. With a strange self-analysis , he shifted the problems towards the club after the recent bankruptcy against West Ham (currently fourth in the table) - and rejected all criticism of himself. After all, there is no better coach (and coaching staff) than him.
