Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl has already been linked with the vacant managerial role at Spurs after the sacking of Jose Mourinho on Monday.
Via the Telegraph’s John Percy, Hasenhuttl is seen as a potential replacement for the Lilywhites in the long-term but is not considered proven enough just yet.
Looking at odds from Oddschecker, we can see that the Austrian is currently 17th favourite. His chances of landing the job from various bookmakers listed on the site range from 20/1 to 28/1, although it must be said that odds are often not a realistic assessment of the actual situation.
Importantly, his odds are not shortening and other managers like Julien Nagelsmann, Brendan Rodgers and Eddie Howe are currently the top three favourites to replace Mourinho.

As mentioned before, the Telegraph have suggested that Ralph Hasenhuttl is seen as not qualified enough to take the reigns at White Hart Lane right now.
Ahead of what is building up to be a crucial summer for Saints, this is good news. Their manager is being watched by others, with links being made to many clubs during his tenure at St Mary’s so far, but he still needs to prove himself with consistently impressive results in the Premier League.
Next season may well be the one where he manages to get everything aligned, the squad depth he needs and his own unique footballing style imprinted on the top-flight for good.
There is no doubt that offers will eventually be made to him by clubs that may have better quality players and more finance to work with. Champions League management will also be a draw.
However, if he manages to push Saints into a position where they are battling for the Europa League places once again then all parties will be satisfied. He will have done his job – and may even be willing to stay to extend things even further – and the club will be able to attract better players and managers as a result.
