Nuno Espirito Santo is looking for a way back to the Premier League following his recent sacking at Tottenham Hotspur, even though his agent is trying to push through a deal that will see him coach in France.

The Portuguese coach’s agent Jorge Mendes is attempting to orchestrate a move that will see the former Wolves manager make the move to France, with possible destinations including Lyon and Lille.

This is according to The Sun who understand that Santo is wanting a move back to the Premier League following his dismissal from north London.

The league has already seen five sackings already, including his own, but already each club has selected a successor.

Even still, Santo was not among the candidates for the recently vacant Norwich and Aston Villa positions, which were eventually taken by Dean Smith and Steven Gerrard, respectively.

However, Mendes is already pulling strings and feels that a Premier League return might not be possible for Santo just yet, with the agent having aspirations of his client joining a club in France.

Ligue 1 is another league known to have a quick turnover for managers – last summer nine coaches left their respective roles in the dugout, and three of those went to different clubs in the same division.

Lille saw their manager, Christophe Galtier, leave for OGC Nice despite helping Les Dogues win their first league title in ten years.

Now the reigning champions Lille sit in 12th after they have won just four of their opening 13 games.

Lyon, meanwhile, are lying 15 points off the top of the table, with new manager Peter Bosz struggling to find form too.

Tottenham sacked Santo earlier this month after he lost five of their opening ten league matches in the league.

They replaced him with Antonio Conte, whose first Premier League game with the Lilywhites was a 0-0 draw with Rafa Benitez.
