Since Jose Mourinho left the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium last month, the north London outfit have been actively looking for a top class new manager.

The 38-year-old has held the position as interim manager at Borussia Dortmund since December 2020.

He led BVB to DFB-Pokal success earlier this month.

The German-born manager, who now has Croatian citizenship, has done a fine job for Dortmund.

That has led to many admiring glances from around Europe.

Tottenham chasing Edin Terzic as new boss?

German publication BILD reckon that Spurs are ‘hot on the tail’ of the 38-year-old former Hammers assistant manager.

 

Terzic spent just over two years working under Slaven Bilic at West Ham before leaving in 2017 when the 52-year-old was replaced by David Moyes at the London Stadium.

The Croatian national has really impressed during his five-month stint in charge of Dortmund.

Tottenham supremo Daniel Levy has obviously seen something he likes about Terzic.

The 38-year-old implemented an exciting brand of attacking football during his spell in charge at Signal Iduna Park.

Spurs are said to be ‘actively working’ on a deal to bring Terzic in as a permanent replacement for Jose Mourinho.

The young manager clearly has an exciting future in the game.

If he moves to Tottenham and goes on to be a big hit, West Ham will surely be left regretting the fact that they let him slip through their fingers in 2017.
