However, Levy will have to act fast if he wants to get his man with the Russia FA set to offer the Italian a new four-year deal.
Premier League giants Tottenham Hotspur are considering replacing under-pressure head coach Andre Villas-Boas with experienced Russia manager Fabio Capello, according to reports in the Mail on Sunday.
The Portuguese’s future at White Hart Lane has been in doubt for some time now after the north London club surprisingly lost at home in the Premier League to the likes of both West Ham United and Newcastle United, while last weekend’s 6-0 thrashing at the hands of rivals Manchester City at Eastlands has not helped the 36-year-old’s cause either.
However, despite Tottenham turning in a much improved display on Sunday as they drew 2-2 with Premier League champions Manchester United at White Hart Lane, it is still thought that Villas-Boas has just a month left in which to bring about a reversal in the team’s previously lacklustre performances or face being given the sack by chairman Daniel Levy.
And if Levy does opt to part company with Villas-Boas, then one of the names on his short list to take over from the current Spurs boss is that of Capello, who has just managed to successfully guide Russia to next summer’s World Cup finals in Brazil.
