White Hart Lane chairman Daniel Levy chose to axe Portuguese manager Andre Villas-Boas following Tottenham’s 5-0 home defeat to Liverpool on Sunday and will now be looking at potential replacements and Yakin may well be a viable option.

The 39 year old has been in charge of FC Basel since October 2012 and helped the Swiss club to a domestic title last term and narrowly missed out on guiding his side into the last 16 of the Champions League earlier this month and is considered a good up and coming manager.

Yakin has fuelled speculation of a move to take over at Spurs by telling Swiss website ’20 minutes’: ‘I had no contact with Lazio, but with Tottenham, yes.’

One wonders if Yakin is experienced enough at the highest level for a Tottenham side who have set their sights on securing a Champions League berth in arguably the toughest league in Europe.
