The Londoners have been without a manager since Jose Mourinho was dismissed earlier this year.
Filling in the void left by the Portuguese mastermind, ex-pro Ryan Mason had been tasked with holding the fort.
However, with it a given that Mason will not be the side’s long-term manager, many fans have been left to wonder who could be appointed as the club’s next permanent boss.
Well, according to a recent claim from Romano, Tottenham Hotspur has opened talks with Conte.
Tottenham have contacted Antonio Conte as candidate for Spurs job – not done but talks ongoing about potential project, contract and salary. ?? #Spurs #THFC

Conte famously guided Inter Milan to the 2020-21 Serie A title, 11 years after their last.
However, after walking away from his role just a matter of days ago, Conte is available once again.
Romano claims the highly-rated Italian, who has also previously worked with Chelsea, is in discussions with Tottenham Hotspur – with the manager currently weighing up whether or not the vacant role is one he would like to fill.
