Tottenham Hotspur fans left stunned by reports linking Ranieri to the club

It is that time of the football season when transfer rumours are here, there and everywhere.

Tottenham Hotspur have been linked to a fair few footballers in recent weeks, but there is one figure who has raised a few eyebrows.

The latest reports do not surround a potential new player, but a new coach.

According to Presse Ocean, former Leicester City manager Claudio Ranieri is in talks with Tottenham regarding a managerial role.

Mauricio Pochettino is currently in charge of the North London outfit, and there are no concrete indications that the Argentine is heading towards the exit door.

It would be hugely surprising if the Spurs boss left before the club move into their new stadium adjacent to White Hart Lane.

Ranieri, who won the Premier League title with Leicester in the 2015-16 season, is currently in charge of French outfit Nantes.

However, there have been murmurs that the Italian could be on the way out following a winless run of seven games.

Unsurprisingly, Tottenham fans were left shocked by the reports, while others came up with their own amusing job roles for Ranieri.
