Tottenham Hotspur are looking at Everton manager Roberto Martinez to replace Tim Sherwood for next season, Daily Star reports.

Spurs are considering a shock move to bring the Toffees’ boss after a very successful first season at Goodison Park.

Two years ago, Lilywhites chairman Daniel Levy chose Andres Villas-Boas over Martinez for the Spurs hot-seat and now seems to be regretting his decision.

Villas-Boas lasted only 17 months in charge of the club after spending £108m in last summer’s transfer window.

Meanwhile Martinez, whose Wigan team were regulated last season, managed to steer them to FA Cup glory by beating Manchester City in the final.

And his reputation has steadily been improving after a stellar debut season in charge of Everton.

Now Levy is looking to test the Toffees in keeping hold of their current boss.

Everton’s inability to qualify for the UEFA Champions League this year could open the door for Spurs to lure Martinez with the promise of a bigger transfer kitty to spend in the summer.

It is speculated that Martinez will only be handed £25m by the Merseysiders, which could be inadequate for a team challenging to get into Europe’s elite cup competition.
