Roma general manager and former England assistant manager Franco Baldini is understood to be target for a possible role at Tottenham.

Sky Sports understands the White Hart Lane outfit are considering bringing in an experienced figure to work under new manager Andre Villas-Boas in a role similar to that which was held by former director of football Damien Comolli.

Spurs are believed to be keen to restructure their scouting and player recruitment under Villas-Boas, with the new man expected to work alongside the manager and chairman Daniel Levy.

Baldini worked as number two to former England manager Fabio Capello before leaving his post to join the Serie A club in October 2011.

Levy is looking to bring back a more continental style hierarchy at White Hart Lane, with Comolli not being replaced in the wake of his departure in October 2008.
