Tottenham are still on the hunt for a new manager after seeing talks with Antonio Conte collapse on Friday.
The north London club have been without a permanent boss ever since Jose Mourinho was sacked in April, with Ryan Mason taking temporary charge of the side until the end of the season.
Now Daniel Levy is in need of a full-time coach, and he has failed to secure his top targets – with Conte now joining Erik ten Hag, Julian Nagelsmann and Brendan Rodgers on the list of managers that have not been lured into joining Spurs.
So who could Levy turn his attention to now? Daily Star Sport have picked out the four best candidates.
Before Spurs entered talks with Conte, reports began to surface of a potential return for Pochettino, who has spent the last six months in charge of Paris St-Germain.
The Argentine is believed to be keen on rejoining the club that sacked him 18 months ago, but just half-a-year into his PSG deal it would be a surprise if the move was granted.
Yet should Levy decide that Poch is his man for a second time, he could try his luck by offering the French giants a hefty compensation package.
The Belgium manager is not exactly a stellar name, but should Pochettino prove out of reach he will most likely be the next best option for Levy.
He enjoyed great success in the Premier League with Wigan, defying the odds to keep their heads above water for four seasons and sparking one of the greatest football upsets ever by toppling Manchester City in the 2013 FA Cup final.
While his subsequent move to Everton didn't exactly work out, Martinez has since guided Belgium to third place at the 2018 World Cup and is renowned for imposing a free-flowing style of play.
Another manager gaining plaudits for his style of play is Potter, who has emerged as a dark-horse option for Spurs despite Brighton finishing down in 16th last season.
With a limited budget and average playing squad at his disposal, the 46-year-old has perhaps overachieved by keeping them in the Premier League – and while playing some attractive football which often went unrewarded due to poor end product.
Nevertheless, this one would certainly be a risk given his lack of top-job experience

The Fulham boss and former Spurs midfielder is an even more left-field option than Potter, having been sent packing to the Championship at the first time of asking in 2020/21.
Yet while the Craven Cottage outfit were convincingly relegated in the end, Parker never wavered from his philosophy of playing out from the back and taking the game to any team, which earned them a famous win away at Liverpool earlier this year.
He also gained promotion to the Premier League in his first full season as a manager, so if Spurs are looking to go down the ever-popular former-player route Parker could be a bold choice.
