Arne Slot: Feyenoord concerned they will lose manager to Tottenham this summer | Football News
Feyenoord are increasingly concerned they are going to lose manager Arne Slot to Tottenham.
The Dutchman is among the top contenders for the job and Feyenoord are increasingly resigned to losing him to Spurs.
Feyenoord are still trying to get Slot to stay having just captured the Eredivisie title – and are willing to double his wages to around £3.5m (€4m) per year.

There have been reports in England that Slot has become the outright frontrunner – but Sky Sports News has been warned that might not yet be the case.

Nagelsmann out of Spurs running
Sky Sports News has already reported Julian Nagelsmann will not be the next Tottenham head coach. Sources have told Sky Sports News that Spurs did not meet him and no meeting is scheduled to take place.
Nagelsmann is respected by senior figures at the club but he is not one for them at this moment in time.
Spurs and Chelsea both showed initial interest in the former Bayern Munich boss.
