Tottenham make Blanc and Villas-Boas top targets

Tottenham Hotspur have identified former Chelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas and current Head Coach of the France national team Laurent Blanc as their top two targets to replace Harry Redknapp as manager, the Daily Mirror has reported.

Everton boss David Moyes had been the early favourite but the Mirror adds the Scot would only consider the position at White Hart Lane if he was to be handed full control of transfers. Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is thought to favour appointing a director of football-type figure to oversee non-playing matters, with former Tottenham midfielder and coach Tim Sherwood a possibility.

With the likelihood of Moyes moving to the capital apparently receding Tottenham are now said to have settled on Blanc and Villas-Boas as the prime contenders, although a number of other names - including Wigan Athletic’s Roberto Martinez and former Schalke 04 Coach Ralf Rangnick - retain an outside shot.

Villas-Boas has been out of work since he was sacked by Chelsea in March and Blanc’s contract to lead the France team expires after Euro 2012, with representatives of Spurs said to have already contacted the former while also keen to speak with the latter.
