Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy is reportedly keen to appoint Roberto Martinez as the club's next manager, with the former Everton boss said to be eyeing a Premier League return.
The current Belgium boss made a name for himself at Swansea and Wigan before a high-profile switch to Everton in 2013. The Toffees finished fifth in his first season in charge, but the next two campaigns proved more difficult, and the Spaniard was sacked in May 2016.
The 47-year-old did not have to wait long for his next role; however, after being appointed Belgium boss three months later.
He guided the country to a third-place finish at the 2018 World Cup, beating England in the consolation game.
Martinez has also guided Belgium to the top spot in FIFA's world rankings ahead of Euro 2020 this summer.
Despite his success in the international game, British newspaper - The Sun - claims that Martinez wants a return to club management. The report adds that the Premier League is once again his preferred option.
The report also claims that Tottenham are keen on appointing him, having recently sacked Jose Mourinho.
Ryan Mason was named interim boss until the end of the season. However, the former Spurs midfielder is not thought to be in the running long-term.
Julian Nagelsmann, Erik ten Hag and Brendan Rodgers have already turned down the job. That has left the likes of Ralf Rangnick, Martinez and Rangers boss Steven Gerrard as potential options. Another former midfielder, Scott Parker, has also been mentioned.
Appointing Martinez would undoubtedly see a change of playing style from Mourinho's drab, defensive football.
The former Toffees chief demands progressive, passing football. However, he has been criticised in the past for ignoring the defensive side of the game.
Tottenham, who still have a very slim chance of securing Champions League football, are expected to appoint their new manager this summer.
