Gianluca Di Marzio has tweeted an update on Fonseca’s move to Tottenham possibly falling through, with Gattuso being contacted as a backup plan…

This seems a risky move for Tottenham, with Gattuso known for being a bit hot-headed.

The Italian tactician only recently took charge of Fiorentina, but left the job after just a few weeks after disagreeing over the club’s transfer targets and plans for the first-team squad, according to Sky Sports.

It’s not clear if Gattuso really seems an ideal fit for Spurs, unlike Fonseca, who seemed a strong candidate.

Not an ideal start to the summer for Tottenham…
