At £15m a season, he’s expensive. Nagelsmann, however, earned just £8m in comparison during his time at Bayern.
If Spurs were to agree to that figure, he’d still be behind Leicester’s Brendan Rodgers - while Mikel Arteta takes home £8.3m per season at Arsenal.
Erik ten Hag, who was interviewed by Tottenham prior to Conte’s arrival during his spell at Ajax, now earns £9m at Manchester United.
Nagelsmann isn’t the only manager being linked with the job at Spurs, however.
Mauricio Pochettino is reportedly open to going back to the dugout for a second time, with the Argentine also on the market.
