Antonio Conte is in London to hold talks with Tottenham today after they axed Nuno Espirito Santo, according to reports in Italy.
Spurs have cut ties with Nuno just 17 games into his reign with the club, with the lacklustre 3-0 defeat to Manchester United proving to be the final straw as he leaves the club eighth in the Premier League.
Daniel Levy was already weighing up potential replacements before calling time on the Portuguese manager and approached former target Conte on the weekend.
