Sky sources understand Andre Villas-Boas is interested in becoming Tottenham manager but they also understand that there has been no official contact between the two parties.
Villas-Boas has emerged as favourite to take over at White Hart Lane following Harry Redknapp's departure earlier in the week.
He already has some experience of English football following an ill-fated spell in charge of Chelsea last season, which came to an end in March.
The 34-year-old has since stated that he is looking to get back into management with a club that has a clear, exciting vision for the future.
And it is understood that he would consider the vacant Spurs job, although no talks have yet taken place.
The likes of David Moyes, Roberto Martinez, Fabio Capello and Jurgen Klinsmann have also been linked with the post since Redknapp made his exit.
Redknapp had spent almost four years at the Tottenham helm and last season guided the club to a fourth-placed finish, but they missed out on UEFA Champions League qualification when Chelsea beat Bayern Munich to claim European football's most coveted prize.
Redknapp had been keen to stay on and extend his current deal with Spurs, but chairman Daniel Levy decided a change was needed.
Who should be the next Tottenham manager?
