Ex Juventus director, Fabio Paratici is right behind Tottenham’s decision to land former Roma coach Paulo Fonseca.
The Daily Express reports that Paratici is set to be confirmed as football chief with Tottenham – and is already at work.
It’s believed the Italian, who left Juventus at the end of last season, has urged the club to appoint former Roma boss Fonseca.
Paratici believes the Portuguese has all the credentials to lead the club forward into a new era.
Although he is yet to be unveiled as the club’s sporting director, Paratici has already unofficially started his role behind the scenes.
He has been heavily involved in talks over a new manager in the past few days after agreeing a three-year contract.
Antonio Conte was set to join him in north London before a move collapsed following discussions.
However, now Spurs are believed to be edging closer to sealing the deal to land Fonseca.
