The Dutchman is considering a switch to White Hart Lane.
Tottenham Hotspur’s search for a new manager may be over as Ajax head coach Frank de Boer confirms he has had talks with the Premier League club.
De Boer has confirmed that the north London side contacted the Dutch champions through their director of football and former Arsenal star Marc Overmars.
Ajax secured their fourth consecutive Eredivisie title under the guidance of the 43-year-old on Sunday and the coach says he will not talk to Spurs properly until the season finishes next week.
“I’m going to listen and talk,” de Boer was quoted by the Guardian.
“Then I’ll make my feelings known. I want to add something to a club, so that people can say that they see the hand of Frank de Boer.
“Liverpool are a good example of this with Brendan Rodgers.”
It’s thought that Tottenham’s first choice to replace current boss Tim Sherwood in the summer was current Netherlands manager Louis van Gaal.
However, with it looking increasingly likely that the 62-year-old will instead succeed David Moyes at Manchester United, chairman Daniel Levy has turned his attentions to de Boer.
Spurs have been on the lookout for a new boss since Andre Villas-Boas was sacked in December 2013 and Sherwood took over on what was then a temporary basis.
Yet a strong start for the Englishman in the dugout saw Levy give the 45-year-old a contract until the end of the 2014/15 campaign, before deciding he wasn’t the man for the job after all.
This has understandably annoyed Sherwood, but it seems the pursuit of de Boer will go ahead regardless.
