According to Sky Sports, Tottenham are in advanced discussions with Southampton boss Mauricio Pochettino and will confirm the appointment soon. Pochettino was earlier rumoured to pictured present in Tottenham’s training ground but the Saints Boss is now set to take charge at White Hart Lane for next season. 

Spurs Chairman Daniel Levy had earlier claimed that he wouldn’t consider any unemployed manager for the hot seat at the club and has now identified the Argentine as the most suitable manager to lead the club in the right direction.

The Telegraph reports: Tottenham will offer Pochettino a three-year deal worth a potential £9 million, with the club taking the decision to target the Argentine after a board meeting on Friday. However the north London side need a pay of compensation of  £2m to Southampton in order to free him of his services from the south coast.

There were earlier reports that Tottenham  Ajax manager Frank De Boer was in the reckoning for the job with former  Liverpool and current Napoli manager Rafa Benitez with Roberto Mancini also being in the fray.

Pochettino’s immediate task would be to take Spurs to the cusp of Champions League qualification but might not armed with a transfer kitty which Andre Villas Boas was offered last summer, much of which which came from the sale of Gareth Bale to Real Madrid.
