Italian sources claim Tottenham are trying to poach Roma director of sport and former England team manager Franco Baldini.
Often criticised by the fans in Rome, Baldini is in his second stint at the club after the 1999-2005 spell.
On Friday director Walter Sabatini officially extended his contract with the Giallorossi, but it’s rumoured Baldini is considering a future elsewhere.
According to Sky Sport Italia, Tottenham have made an intriguing proposal for Baldini to work at White Hart Lane next season.
He already has a good rapport with chairman Daniel Levy and is familiar to English football as part of ex-England manager Fabio Capello’s backroom staff.
