Queiroz is currently focused on the World Cup next summer after guiding Iran to the tournament, but he is known to be friends with Spurs chairman Daniel Levy.
And the Portuguese coach says he would be interested in taking the vacant job at White Hart Lane, if the opportunity arose.
‘Absolutely,’ he said when asked if he wants to the job.
‘Tottenham is a club I really appreciate a lot and I have great admiration.
‘One of my coaching dreams is to get back to English football. I was very happy in Manchester. It was the most happy and outstanding football period of my entire career.’
Queiroz made his name working alongside Sir Alex Ferguson at United, before spells managing Real Madrid, Portugal and South Africa.
He is one of a number of high profile managers so far linked to the post with bookies favourite Michael laudrop ruling himself out yesterday by saying he dies not move clubs half way through a season.
