Leeds United managerial target Paulo Fonseca offered to Tottenham Hotspur and Celtic

Roma manager Paulo Fonseca has been offered to both Tottenham Hotspur and Celtic, according to The Transfer Window podcast.

The Portuguese are leaving Serie A at the end of the season, with Jose Mourinho taking over.

The Special One was sacked by Spurs a fortnight ago, and North Londoners have already been linked with a few names.

Fonseca is the latter, and he fits the bill given that president Daniel Levy wants a young manager who loves attacking football.

Celtic are also looking for something similar in their next manager, which is why Eddie Howe has been named as the favorite to succeed Neil Lennon.

However, with former Bournemouth yet to sign with the Hoops, Fonseca could emerge as an option although the finances involved may be an issue.

Leeds United have been linked with former Shakhtar Donetsk boss over the weekend, with Sportitalia TV reporter Gianluigi Longari claiming to have made contact with him recently.

While Marcelo Bielsa has yet to sign a new deal at Elland Road, it looks like the Whites are putting contingency plans in place.

It looks like Celtic and Spurs could now join them in the 48-year-old’s run, with Crystal Palace, Nice and Napoli watching him as well.

The Portuguese have won three Ukrainian Premier League titles, three Ukrainian Cups and a Ukrainian Super Cup with Shakhtar.

Fonseca also won the Portuguese Super Cup with Porto and the Portuguese Cup with Braga, and he might want to prove himself in the Premier League.

In other news, Arsenal have reportedly joined Spurs in race for Italian manager.
