- Pochettino has impressed Chelsea hierarchy in talks this week
- Burnley manager Vincent Kompany also in contention
Mauricio Pochettino is the new front-runner for the Chelsea job after Julian Nagelsmann dropped out of the running. The process to find a permanent successor to Graham Potter is continuing but the former Tottenham manager Pochettino, who has been out of work since leaving Paris Saint-Germain last summer, has impressed in talks with the Stamford Bridge hierarchy this week.
Pochettino has heard his name sung by match-going Spurs fans in recent weeks, with the north London club also hunting for a manager after the dismissal of Antonio Conte on 26 March. The Argentinian would be a popular reappointment but the board have, as yet, made no serious approach.
