Gennaro Gattuso “closing in” on Tottenham Hotspur role

    AC Milan Gattuso

    Whirlwind day

    It’s been a whirlwind few hours for both Gennaro Gattuso and Tottenham Hotspur.

    The Italian boss had agreed to take over at Fiorentina until this morning, when the club announced that the agreement made between the two had been terminated, just weeks after being appointed.

    According to transfer journalist Fabrizio Romano, this was due to “problems on transfers strategy”, most likely involving the role of renowned super-agent Jorge Mendes.

    Mendes enjoys having control over transfer decisions at a club, as he has shown at Wolverhampton Wanderers, who he worked with during Nuno Espirito Santo’s tenure. The agent was responsible for the signings of Ruben Neves, Joao Moutinho and Daniel Podence among others.

    However, it appears that Tottenham, unlike Fiorentina, are willing to accept this baggage and have reportedly made Gattuso their new top choice, although how far up their original list of candidates he was remains unclear.

    Gattuso is Paratici’s choice

    According to Tottenham Hotspur correspondent Alasdair Gold, Gattuso was always the top choice of Fabio Paratici, who joined the club as director of football last week. However, he was not available until he parted ways with la Viola this morning, which prompted Spurs to change tack.

    The Lilywhites have already had talks break down with Antonio Conte and Mauricio Pochettino, but had seemingly settled on Paulo Fonseca as their main target. All this has now been thrown out of the window.

    This certainly sets an interesting dynamic, with ex-boss Jose Mourinho having been Daniel Levy’s choice. It is unclear how Levy feels about the appointment, yet it seems that it has mainly been driven by the incoming man, which could cause friction down the line.

    Throw a superagent used to getting his own way into the mix, and things could get very messy very quickly in the white half of North London.
