Pochettino is set to make Tottenham’s Dele Alli his first signing as manager of Paris Saint-Germain.
Pochettino has been out of work for almost a year, amid constant links with Manchester United and Real Madrid.
The former Spurs boss is in talks to take over from Thomas Tuchel, and with the 24-year-old England international was a regular in Pochettino’s team he has fallen out of favour with current boss Jose Mourinho.
It was Pochettino who signed Alli for Tottenham having the best spell of his career so far under the former Espanyol boss. Alli netted 55 goals and assisted 52 more under Pochettino’s guidance.
Alli has started just one Premier League game this season, and also only two Europe League outings.
Pochettino loves Alli, and if his move to PSG is confirmed imminently, the chances of Alli joining him in the French capital will surely shoot up.
