Tottenham are finalising their plans to appoint a new sporting director with Tiago Pinto and Markus Krosche among the names under consideration.

Chairman Daniel Levy has already appointed Scott Munn to assume the position as chief football officer and also wants a new sporting director in place ahead of the summer transfer window.

Previous sporting director Fabio Paratici left the club last month after his appeal against a worldwide football ban for alleged irregular financial practices during his time working for Juventus failed.

Paratici’s replacement will report to Munn, who will start work later this summer.

Johannes Spors and Brentford’s Lee Dykes are among the names currently under consideration for the role.

But Pinto and Krosche are also emerging as candidates for the vacancy.

Pinto is currently general manager at Roma, where he works closely alongside former Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho.

He has recently been linked with a similar position at West Ham.

Meanwhile, Krosche is currently sporting director at German club Eintracht Frankfurt.

Intriguingly, Krosche worked closely with Julian Naglesmann, who is out of work and a possible candidate to become Tottenham’s next head coach, at Red Bull Leipzig.

Naglesmann, as reported by Mail Sport, wants clarity on the identity of Tottenham’s next sporting director before deciding whether to take any formal approach from Spurs seriously.

Krosche was linked with a similar role at Liverpool earlier this season and has an excellent reputation within European football circles.

Bayern Munich are also said to be interested in acquiring his services.
