Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has been lined up on a two man shortlist to replace Paris Saint Germain manager Unai Emery in the summer, according to a report.
The Mirror claim on their website that the Argentine boss has been named alongside former Barcelona head coach Luis Enrique as a potential replacement for the European giants’ current boss, who is said to be leaving the French side at the end of the season.
PSG are reportedly looking for a high profile figure to take charge at the Parc de Princes, and have identified Pochettino as one of their top choices after he helped turn Tottenham into title challengers both in England as well as in European competitions.
A move to PSG would see the Argentine boss return to the club where he spent two years as a player between 2001 and 2003, before leaving for fellow French side Bordeaux.
Since taking charge at Tottenham, who he joined from Southampton back in 2014, he has overseen 190 games for the Lilywhites, winning 104, drawing 43 and losing 43, with 355 goals scored under his stewardship.
His most recent victory came on Saturday, with Harry Kane’s hat trick securing a 3-0 win over Burnley at Turf Moor to leave the club sitting in fifth for Christmas.
