Conte takes over Spurs job after Nuno's sack
Spurs sacked Nuno Espirito Santo on Monday morning after their 3-0 loss to Manchester United at home.
Antonio Conte has been offered an 18-month contract by Tottenham, according to Sky in Italy.
The former Juventus, Chelsea and Inter Milan manager will be in London today to hold talks with the north London club.
Spurs sacked Nuno Espirito Santo on Monday morning after their 3-0 loss to Manchester United at home. The former manager of Wolverhampton Wanderers started life at the Premier League so bright yet saw performances and results fall away.
"I know how much Nuno and his coaching staff wanted to succeed and I regret that we have had to take this decision," sporting director Fabio Paratici said in an official club statement.
"Nuno is a true gentleman and will always be welcome here. We should like to thank him and his coaching staff and wish them well for the future."
Conte was without a club since leaving Inter in the summer, and he turned down Paratici and Spurs then, leaving the English club to speak with Paulo Fonseca, Gennaro Gattuso and Sergio Conceicao before hiring Nuno.
The Italian was earlier linked with Manchester United lately too.
