Tottenham are close to appointing Paulo Fonseca as their new manager, according to The Athletic.

Spurs have been in ‘advanced negotiations’ with Fonseca since Wednesday and are expected to announce his arrival early next week.

The former Roma manager is poised to sign a contract until 2023, with the option for one additional year.
