While his priority is sorting the managerial situation, he is well aware of the importance of having a transfer expert with the qualities of Dykes. They want to sort it out as soon as possible in order to shift their focus back to transfers.
Tottenham received a major setback when Fabio Paratici was handed a 30-month ban by FIFA for his involvement in the Juventus scandal. Post that ban, the director of football’s post has been vacant and they want to appoint Dykes to fill it up.
Meanwhile, West Ham United are also keen on the 39-year-old. The Hammers have been disappointed with their transfer business under David Moyes. And, they want to bring in a new director to improve their recruitment process.
While they are keen on having Lee Dykes, the Hammers also have their eyes on Paul Mitchell who is all set to part ways with AS Monaco and Michael Edwards, the former Liverpool chief.
