Graham Potter previously stated his commitment to Brighton and rubbished reports linking him with the Tottenham job.
Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy and the club’s board are very unhappy with the manner of the 3-0 defeat to Manchester United on Saturday evening, with speculation mounting over Nuno Espirito Santo ‘s future in north London, football.london has been told.
The Seagulls head coach was linked with the Spurs job over the summer before Nuno was eventually appointed and he spoke about the speculation back then.
“It was just speculation [the Spurs and Everton links]. It’s stuff to fill the newspapers and the 24-hour media we have to live with,” he told Sky Sports in August.
“I was on my holidays, resting up and getting ready for this season and trying to learn and develop. It’s just part of football.
“I said at the end of last season I was two years into a six-year contract so there’s a lot of time that we still need to be together to carry on improving.
“There’s a lot of work we need to finish. So it’s about focusing on that.”
Potter’s team have started off the Premier League season in fantastic fashion, with the Seagulls currently sitting in seventh place in the table, after they fought from two goals down to draw 2-2 with Liverpool at Anfield on Saturday afternoon.
Former Liverpool star Stan Collymore has recently called for Potter to be the man to eventually replace Jurgen Klopp as Reds boss.
Speaking to Empire of the Kop, Collymore said: “Graham Potter plays a front-foot, aggressive, attacking style of football.
“He undoubtedly will be on the radar of the top eight or nine clubs … if he’s not on a list of a potential Liverpool manager, then he should be.”
Potter is clearly a man in demand, with the 46-year-old coach proving his ability during his two years down at the Amex Stadium, meaning Tottenham might have to act swiftly should they want to appoint him.
Next up for Tottenham is their Europa Conference League clash with Vitesse on Thursday, but it remains to be seen whether Nuno will be in the dugout for that match.
