Fulham boss Marco Silva is emerging as the top contender to replace Antonio Conte at Tottenham.

Conte’s future at Spurs is under serious scrutiny with his contract expiring this summer.

The Italian coach, 53, insists he will see out the remainder of the season but his departure appears inevitable with no talks of extending his stay in north London so far.

And SunSport understands that should Conte leave, Spurs view Fulham boss Silva as a leading option to fill the vacancy.

Portuguese coach Silva has overseen a remarkable campaign at Craven Cottage, guiding them to automatic promotion back to the Premier League last May.

Despite losing 3-0 at home to leaders Arsenal on Sunday, Fulham are on course to finish in the top half and are currently challenging for a European spot with 11 league games left.

Silva - whose contract at Fulham expires at the end of next season - is viewed as an incredibly talented young boss, 45, and has dramatically rebuilt his reputation in west London since getting sacked by Everton in December 2019.

Mauricio Pochettino has also been linked with a return to Tottenham, as well as former Spain and Barcelona chief Luis Enrique and ex-Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel.

Spurs chairman Daniel Levy will have admired the way Silva has built a team capable of competing without breaking the bank – a model he still enforces at the club.

However, it remains unknown whether skipper Harry Kane would see Silva’s appointment as proof the club can win trophies in the near future – potentially forcing him to consider his options in the summer transfer window.
