Leeds United could target a move for Brendan Rodgers this summer despite links with a move to Tottenham Hotspur.

Brendan Rodgers is in the frame for the Leeds United job if Sam Allardyce moves on at the end of the season.

That is according to a report from The Athletic, who claim that Rodgers is likely to come into the equation for Leeds.

Yet it’s suggested that Rodgers could be targeted if Leeds suffer relegation to the Championship.

The Northern Irishman is understood to be the type of manager want in terms of his approach to the game.

Rodgers has always pushed for an attractive brand of football and Leeds seemingly want that should they move on from Allardyce.

It would be a big surprise to see Rodgers drop into the Championship though.

Rodgers parted ways with Leicester City in April but his Premier League stock still seems pretty high.

Leeds would be a very big fish in the Championship, but whether that’s enough to tempt Rodgers is another matter.

The scale of the task facing Leeds in their potential pursuit of Rodgers is highlighted by recent links to Tottenham Hotspur.

ESPN reported earlier this month that Tottenham have held internal discussions about making a move for Rodgers.

Daniel Levy has been a fan of Rodgers for a while now and Tottenham’s interest wasn’t a huge shock.

Whilst Rodgers saw his form desert him in the final stages at Leicester, he is still highly-rated as a top coach.

When a Premier League team with top four ambitions are at least looking at Rodgers, it goes to show what Leeds are up against.

Tottenham look set to go for Arne Slot instead but Rodgers has at least been on their radar.

That may give Rodgers confident that he can get a good Premier League job rather than drop into the Championship, making Leeds’ task seem pretty difficult.
