Mauricio Pochettino in line for Chelsea job

Mauricio Pochettino in line for Chelsea job

Chelsea are understood to be monitoring the situation as they search for a replacement for Antonio Conte, but Purslow believes that the rumours are more likely to be a bargaining ploy over a new contract by Pochettino's representatives.

Conte, who led Chelsea to the Premier League title last season, is expected to be fired after Saturday's FA Cup final against Manchester United regardless of the outcome.

The Argentine has become increasingly frustrated with Tottenham's failure to back him in the transfer market and made his feelings clear after Sunday's 5-4 win over Leicester.

Spurs are on the verge of moving into their new stadium next season and this is an exciting era for the club for Pochettino to want to stick around for.

Aware of interest from other clubs, including Chelsea, according to The Sun, the 46-year-old is determined to get assurances that Spurs are in a financial position to compete for trophies.

"Considering what he's done at the club, I think they would be so upset".

"I love the ways his teams go out and play, and the budgets he has had and what he has done with players - everyone I've spoken to who has played under him has loved his tactics and loved the way he plays". I think if we do what we did against all the teams in the Champions League again, we have a chance of going even further.

"It is a season where I have had to be patient and be mentally positive", he said.

Although Chelsea failed to secure Champions League football, they have identified Pochettino as the man to bring in a long-term strategy at Stamford Bridge.

"Poch has got a fantastic record", he told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast.

Former Blues striker Cascarino admits such an appointment would be "a massive coup" for Chelsea, but doubts it will happen as Spurs would be left "absolutely devastated".
