Brentford brace themselves for Tottenham’s interest in manager Thomas Frank

Tottenham Hotspur are interested in Brentford manager Thomas Frank, reports talkSPORT.

The Bees are already bracing themselves for interest from the north London club.

Spurs are looking for a new permanent manager after parting ways with Antonio Conte in March.

They were strongly linked with former Bayern Munich boss Julian Nagelsmann but talks have ended between both parties.

Interim manager Ryan Mason is keen on taking the job permanently but chairman Daniel Levy is expected to appoint a new boss.

He is an admirer of Frank and could look to bring him to Tottenham.

Frank helped the Bees secure Premier League promotion after three seasons in charge.

They hit the ground running in the top flight, finishing 13th at the end of last term.

The west London club have improved significantly this term and are ninth in the table with two games left.

Frank has improved Brentford, but whether he can take Spurs to the next level remains to be seen.

The 49-year-old was in charge of three of Denmark’s national youth teams before managing Brondby IF between 2013 and 2016.

He was the Bees’ assistant manager under Dean Smith before becoming the boss.

Brentford rewarded Frank with a new contract last December until 2027 and Tottenham will need to pay compensation to land him.

The Lilywhites are sixth in the Premier League but could miss out on the Europa Conference League as Aston Villa are only behind them on goal difference.

Tottenham play Brentford and Leeds United next and may need to win both games to play in Europe next term.
