White Hart Lane chairman Daniel Levy held talks with the experienced former Barcelona and Bayern Munich manager prior to appointing Tim Sherwood as the successor to Andre Villas-Boas last year.
Efforts to bring in the 62 year old failed but should Tottenham fail to secure a top four finish Sherwood will apparently be axed and Van Gaal is in place to take the hot-seat following the 2014 World Cup finals.
Louis van Gaal has made it abundantly clear he wants to return to club management, stating recently;
“I am a winner and craving a trophy. This is why I am sick of being a national coach. I only see the players eight times a year. I am not enjoying the job of national coach at all.
“After the World Cup I want to coach a big club again and win trophies. Otherwise I will retire.”
Prior to taking over as Holland national team boss van Gaal had six domestic titles in three countries as well as a Champions League triumph with Ajax back in 1995.
