Tottenham are set to move for highly-rated Swansea manager Brendan Rodgers if Harry Redknapp is poached by England.

The Spurs boss is yet to be approached by the FA but is widely expected to be offered the chance to succeed Fabio Capello, who resigned in February.

And the White Hart Lane club are reportedly ready to move swiftly for 39-year-old Rodgers.

Having guided the Welsh side to promotion from the Championship last season, the former Chelsea coach has won plenty of admirers with his attacking brand of football.

The Swans currently lie in 10th place in the Barclays Premier League, well clear of relegation.

And according to The Sun, Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy has targeted Rodgers, who recently penned a new deal at the Liberty stadium, as the man to succeed Redknapp.

Other potential candidates include Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho and Everton's David Moyes but the former has indicated he is prepared to sign a new deal with the Spanish giants while Levy is not convinced by Moyes's style of football.

Spurs legend Jurgen Klinsmann is another possibility but he is content with life in California and with his job as coach of the United States national side.
