Real Madrid are considering a swoop for Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino, according to a report.

The Mirror claim that the Spanish giants are beginning to discuss possible targets for their next manager and Pochettino is currently at the top of the list.

The report details that Madrid have doubts over the long-term future of current boss Zinedine Zidane, despite an impressive start with them.

Zidane has already won the Champions League with Madrid during his first 10 months in charge and his side are currently top of La Liga, with the only unbeaten record still in the division.

Spurs fans will be concerned about the strong interest from the European heavyweights and will want to keep the Argentinian at White Hart Lane.

Pochettino has become a firm favourite with the north London club since his appointment in 2014 and moulded the Spurs side to match his high intensity style.

The former Southampton boss is well known for his attacking and hard working philosophy, with his current team pressing high up the pitch.

Spurs are currently the only unbeaten side still in the Premier League and have proven strong in defence, conceding just five goals in their opening 10 league games.

Pochettino helped Spurs challenge for the league title last season and they were edged out by eventual champions Leicester.
