Tottenham target Martinez as Sherwood replacement

Tottenham have installed Everton boss Roberto Martinez as one of their top targets to replace Head Coach Tim Sherwood over the summer, according to the Daily Star.

Since Sherwood took charge back in December, several top managers from the Premier League and in Europe have been linked with taking over at White Hart Lane, despite the 45-year-old being handed a contract until the end of next season.

Dutch national team coach Louis van Gaal, title-winning Ajax boss Frank de Boer and Southampton manager Mauricio Pochettino are some of the leading contenders, with Spurs hoping to qualify for the Champions League or even make a challenge for the Premier League title next season.

In his first season at Everton, Martinez has delivered a feel-good factor to Goodison Park, with some intelligent loan signings helping them to their highest ever number of Premier League points, although two straight defeats have ruled them out of Champions League qualification.

Spurs overlooked Martinez back in 2012 when they handed the manager’s job to Andre Villas-Boas, but they hope to lure him to North London with the assurance of a higher transfer budget that the one he would be given at Everton, which is expected to be in the region of £25m due to the lack of investment that is available at the Merseyside club.
