Tottenham Hotspur could now see Thierry Henry join forces with Julian Nagelsmann in the Paris Saint-Germain dugout.
Paris Saint-Germain are targeting Julian Nagelsmann with Thierry Henry to come in as his assistant manager.
That is according to a report from Foot Mercato, who claim that PSG have now targeted Nagelsmann to become their new manager.
Christophe Galtier won Ligue 1 this season but is still on the brink of being sacked by PSG after a mixed campaign.
Jose Mourinho has been linked with the job but Nagelsmann is now emerging as the top choice for the job.
The report even claims that Qatar Sports Investments would welcome the arrival of Thierry Henry as Nagelsmann’s assistant.
Nagelsmann’s former RB Leipzig and Bayern Munich assistant Dino Toppmöller is thought to be a top choice for the Eintracht Frankfurt job.
That means Nagelsmann needs a new right-hand man and Henry – who hails from a Parisian suburb – could arrive.
Foot Mercato add that Nagelsmann and Henry have already spoken and seem to be on the same page about working together at PSG.
Julian Nagelsmann to Tottenham Hotspur can seemingly be ruled out once and for all
Nagelsmann has been heavily linked with the Tottenham job of late.
Can you imagine Arsenal legend Thierry Henry joining the Tottenham coaching staff?
That would understandably take some getting over for Spurs fans, but it won’t be happening.
Nagelsmann is on board with Henry joining him but this appears to be a decision by the PSG owners above all.
One thing is for sure – these rumours can seemingly end the Julian Nagelsmann to Tottenham speculation.
The Times reported in May that Tottenham were left encouraged after talks with Nagelsmann but no deal materialised.
Reports from the Daily Mail just last week suggested that Nagelsmann was left completely in the dark over whether Tottenham actually wanted him or not.
Spurs appear to have gone in another direction now by targeting Celtic boss Ange Postecoglou.
Nagelsmann could instead end up managing France’s biggest team with an Arsenal icon right by his side.
