According to Sky Sport Italia, Fiorentina boss Vincenzo Italiano is among the candidates for the Tottenham job in 2023-24. Spurs are looking for a new coach after sacking Antonio Conte and his former assistant Cristian Stellini. According to Sky Sport Italia transfer specialist Gianluca Di Marzio, Italiano is among Tottenham’s candidates for the job.
Italiano led Fiorentina to two finals this season, in the Coppa Italia and Conference League. The Tuscans lost the Coppa Italia final to Inter on Wednesday, but can lift their first trophy in over 20 years against West Ham on June 7. “I know Italiano has admirers abroad too. He’s on the agenda at Tottenham, who still haven’t finalized a deal with Slot. Many say that Italiano has a €10 million clause, but there are no clauses in his contract with Fiorentina,” said Di Marzio on Thursday, quoted by Fiorentinanews. Fiorentina hired Italiano in 2021, and the 45-year-old tactician is under contract with the Tuscans until June 2024. Italiano has won 50 of his 101 games in charge of Fiorentina.
