Former Roma manager Paulo Fonseca is close to becoming the replacement of his replacement, José Mourinho, in the Italian capital.
Sky Sport reports that the Portuguese technician has emerged as the favorite and is very close to becoming the new manager at Tottenham Hotspur.
The English side are still on the lookout for a new coach after they were rejected by former Inter boss Antonio Conte. Recently appointed Spurs executive Fabio Paratici, who joined the club from Juve, admires Fonseca from his tenure at Roma.
Reportedly, the 48 year-old is set to put pen to paper on a three-year contract with an option for a fourth year following his departure from the Giallorossi, with whom he spent two seasons.
Fonseca compiled a record of 53 wins, 20 draws, and 28 losses in the Italian capital but was replaced early last month by Mourinho, who was sacked by Spurs in April.
