Tottenham have made contact with Jose Mourinho on the possibility of taking over the managerial position at White Hart Lane, according to Soccer Link.
Mauricio Pochettino is under fire at the club, following a poor start to the season, despite investing heavily in the squad this summer.
The former Chelsea and Manchester United manager has been without a job since he was sacked at Old Trafford.
The Portuguese has gone into punditry while rejecting several offers.
Mourinho recently rejected the Lyon role and the Ligue 1 side’s president, Jean-Michel Aulas, claimed it was because he had agreed to join an English club.
Pochettino guided Spurs to their first Champions League final where they lost 0-2 to Liverpool in June. They also finished 4th in the Premier League table last season but have been a shadow of the same team this season losing 0-7 to Bayern Munich in a Champions League match.
