‘Thinking about this move’: In-work manager reportedly tempted by Tottenham Hotspur
Oliver Glasner is open to replacing Antonio Conte at Tottenham Hotspur, according a report.
Bild journalist Christian Falk has written in CaughtOffSide that Glasner is thinking about leaving Eintracht Frankfurt and moving to Tottenham.
The 48-year-old is reportedly one of the managers Spurs are looking at to replace Conte with.
Oliver Glasner open to Tottenham Hotspur move
Falk wrote: “The news that Thomas Tuchel is joining Bayern Munich is good news for Oliver Glasner.
“They clearly like German coaches over in Tottenham! A few years before, they tried to get Hansi Flick, now they’ve tried to go for Tuchel, they’ve got Glasner on the list; he’s Austrian, of course, but German-speaking and German-thinking.
“The point is that Glasner is thinking about this move, which is why he’s yet to sign a new contract. Frankfurt have tried to extend his contract but there are ongoing discussions about the squad.
“Glasner wants to make the next step and get better with Frankfurt. If you don’t get better with Frankfurt, you can get better with another team and get a better squad; these are the discussions between Markus Krösche and Glasner.”
HITC Verdict: One to keep an eye on
In our view, Tottenham Hotspur are not going to be able to bring Oliver Glasner to Tottenham Hotspur Stadium right now.
It is more likely to be a summer move.
Now, of course, just because Tottenham like the Frankfurt manager does not mean that they will hire him.
And just because Glasner is open to a move to Spurs does not mean that he will take the job if it is offered to him.
A lot of things have to fall into place.
For example, Julian Nagelsmann is now available, and he has a bigger reputation in the wider footballing community than Glasner.
So, Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy could well decide to bring the German boss to Spurs either now or in the summer of 2023.
