According to L’Equipe, we are keen to bring their head of recruitment, Florian Maurice, to the new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium this summer. He is thought to be unhappy with his role at Lyon as his influence in key matters appears to have dwindled following the arrivals of Sylvinho and Juninho, as manager and sporting director respectively.
Spurs are no strangers to the French outfit as we have acquired some of their best personnel in recent history.
Maurice could be the ideal candidate for us to have to head up our transfer recruitment in the future and could put us in a good position when it comes down to getting even more quality through the door.
Off-field personnel have become such a key thing for clubs and their successful development within the modern game, so a move for him could work out to be a shrewd appointment for us regarding our long-term future.
And, it would seem fans would be all for bringing Maurice to the club this summer as many of them all shared positive reactions to the report.
Taking to Twitter, supporters believed it would be ‘amazing’ to see happen because of his previous work, whilst another felt a move would be ‘awesome’.
Here are just some of those reactions…
