Michel Vorm has told Football London that Arne Slot is ready for a move to the Premier League and would be a “good fit” for Tottenham – amid reports that Leeds will reignite their interest in the Feyenoord boss this summer.
Slot, 44, has just guided his side to the Eredivisie title – after rejecting a move to Leeds in February following the sacking of Jesse Marsch. It has proven to be the right decision, securing the first Eredivisie title of his entire life.
But, there are numerous Premier League clubs now showing interest in him ahead of the summer. The Times said recently that Spurs, Palace, West Ham and Leeds could all make a move at the end of the season. Plenty want him.
This week, The Athletic report that Leeds are ‘likely’ to look at Slot once again. But of course, any chance of luring Slot to Elland Road depends on Premier League survival. Ex-Spurs goalkeeper Vorm has given his verdict on Slot.
“He’s ready. He showed that. I know the Dutch league well, I speak with a lot of players. They are positive in what they say about him and his style of play, how he communicates and treats all the players. They’ve done so well.
“If you see how they did last season and then now they’ve won the title. He’s done an amazing job and for me he would definitely be a good fit,” Vorm continued, when discussing Slot to Football London reporter Alasdair Gold.

He is certainly one of the most eye-catching managers yet to make a move to one of Europe’s bigger leagues. His style of football is glamorous. But Leeds have tried that, and failed. Slot is doing it with the best team in the league.
Or, one of the best. At Leeds, even if we stay up, playing that way clearly is not going to work. It failed towards the end of Marcelo Bielsa’s reign and under Jesse Marsch. Anyway, Tottenham are much more likely to win the race.
