ROBERTO MARTINEZ is willing to come back to the Premier League after the Euros — putting Tottenham and other clubs on alert.

Spaniard Martinez is believed to be on Spurs’ shortlist but they are unlikely to be the only suitors.
And Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy is in no rush to appoint a successor to axed Jose Mourinho.
But while Martinez is under contract, it would not be difficult for him to leave after the Euro 2020 finals this summer.
Martinez has trusted backroom staff who could take pre-season training at Spurs while he is with Belgium.

As someone who plays a passing style admired by Spurs, they could be a good match as Levy seeks a coach to please fans.
Tottenham are also huge admirers of Leicester chief Brendan Rodgers.
