According to Algemeen Dagblad, AZ Alkmaar boss Arne Slot is the top candidate for Feyenoord as they seek a replacement for Dick Advocaat.

Advocaat announced earlier this week that he would be stepping down as Feyenoord head coach in the summer.

Frank Arnesen is now looking for a replacement and AD is reporting that Arne Slot is the technical director’s dream candidate. Contact has already been made by Arnesen to the AZ Alkmaar head coach.

Slot would not respond when asked about the speculation as he does not want to cause unrest in the AZ Alkmaar squad ahead of a crucial period.

Slot became AZ Alkmaar boss in 2019 and has gained plaudits for the job he has done with the club. AZ were level on points with Ajax when last season was abandoned, while this season they are unbeaten in the league and one win away from reaching the Europa League knockout stages.
