VINCENT KOMPANY is now Tottenham’s No1 target to replace Antonio Conte.

Chairman Daniel Levy was blown away by the 37-year-old Belgian, who led Burnley back to the Premier League in his first season.

SunSport told you last month the Manchester City legend was a surprise name on Levy’s shortlist.

But Spurs bosses have received enthusiastic reports after the Clarets were promoted in record time in a stunning season.

And Kompany is increasingly seen as the manager who can bring a new dimension to the club.

Spurs have watched Mikel Arteta transform bitter rivals Arsenal into Premier League title contenders after spending three years as Pep Guardiola’s No 2 at City.

Kompany spent the same time as captain under Guardiola before becoming Anderlecht coach in 2019.

He won two of his four Premier League crowns with Guardiola – who has branded him as a future Etihad boss.

Spurs are also considering Julian Nagelsmann, Luis Enrique, Brendan Rodgers, Arne Slot and their former boss Mauricio Pochettino.

But, crucially for Levy, Kompany made Burnley the most entertaining side in the Championship after almost assembling a whole new squad.


And Kompany is believed to be willing to listen if Spurs do anything, amid concerns the Clarets may not have the resources to tackle the Prem.

Levy is keen to find a new boss quickly as Harry Kane’s future is once again in doubt and the club face a battle to finish in the top four.

They are three points behind Newcastle and Manchester United but have played a game more.

Conte was released in March after weeks of uncertainty.

The final drop came as the 53-year-old Italy boss launched a stunning attack on his “selfish” Spurs flops after the 3-3 draw at Southampton.

His assistant Cristian Stellini is assistant head coach at Tottenham for the remainder of the season.

Former Premier League midfielder Ryan Mason is the Italian’s assistant head coach as the pair look to rejuvenate Spurs and land in the Champions League spots this season.

Spurs have a tough end to the season
