According to the Daily Star Chelsea are keen on Mauricio Pochettino.

The Argentine has impressed in north London since joining from Southampton, turning Spurs into regular top-four finishers and we look certain to finish ahead of Chelsea this season – particularly if we win at home to Watford tonight.

The article adds however their west London rivals are sniffing around the Argentine as they hunt for Antonio Conte’s replacement at Stamford Bridge.

Football consultant Ian McGarry said on The Transfer Window Podcast: “The interesting thing about Real Madrid is if Zidane doesn’t win the Champions League or suffers from burnout or whatever else that makes him step down, is the lack of coaches out there Real Madrid can recruit.

He added: “Pochettino would be something of a gamble because he’s not a serial winner, in fact he’s never won anything”

He went on to say: “Pochettino would be something of a gamble because he’s not a serial winner, in fact he’s never won anything.But what they see in Pochettino is potential and a personality, someone who relates to players very well.

He also added: “Chelsea are also interested in Pochettino.And although that’s a very long shot because of the history between Chelsea and Tottenham, it’s something Chelsea could do financially.Pochettino could stay in England, stay in London, perhaps get a bigger transfer budget, not the position he’s in now where he’s at loggerheads with his chairman over salaries.”

Conte’s men trail Spurs by two points in the race for a top four spot.We can extend our lead over the fifth-placed Blues tonight with victory over Watford at Wembley.
