Wigan boss Roberto Martinez reportedly has his sights set on the manager’s position at Tottenham Hotspur, as question marks hover over Harry Redknapp’s long term future at the club.
According to reports in the Mirror Martinez, who was heavily linked with the Liverpool job prior to Brendan Rodgers’ appointment, is hoping to be considered for the Tottenham role, as Harry Redknapp enters the final year of his deal.
It is believed that relations between Redknapp and the Tottenham board are strained following his open desire to manage the England national team.
Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is thought to be prepared to offer Redknapp a new deal, but is wary of giving into his demands of a three-year contract and a sizeable transfer budget.
Martinez on the other hand would be worthy of a lengthier deal and has proved that he is able to work on a tighter transfer budget.
The former Swansea manager had also been linked with Aston Villa, but opted against it as he looks to progress in his career.
