Chelsea eyes Spurs boss Pochettino

The Italian is expected to be axed at the end of the season after a poor Premier League title defence. Three of those top four finishes have come under the stewardship of Mauricio Pochettino. Spurs' net transfer spending has been very modest in the Pochettino era, yet they have qualified three times running for the Champions League, so they're doing a tremendous job. This season, they treaded water somewhat.

Jan Vertonghen. A special mention to prefects Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen but this season's Head Boy is undoubtedly the Belgian. The 31-year-old, who was named in the PFA Team of the Year, has been consistently impeccable, missing just one league game. It is not yet known when the first football match will be played there. They play regularly in the starting XI. The form of summer signing Davinson Sanchez has been, in no small part, down to Vertonghen. Seeing as Arsenal have finished outside the top four for only the second in Premier League history, the enormity of Tottenham's accomplishment can not be overlooked.

Toby Alderweireld, one of the best centre-backs in the world could be on his way out of Spurs in the summer because of this and that has left Pochettino unsure of Levy's ambitions.

Rose added: "It is a season where I have had to be patient and be mentally positive".

Spurs lost 2-1 to Manchester United in the FA Cup semi-final at Wembley. Last season saw the club fall short of Champions League glory, surprisingly being knocked out in the last 16 by Juventus and ending the season trophy-less again.

According to Sky Sports News, Conte is expected to depart Stamford Bridge after Saturday's FA Cup final against Manchester United, and Pochettino is on a shortlist of targets that also includes former Barcelona manager Luis Enrique and Napoli boss Maurizio Sarri.

The South Korean, who featured in as many as 37 games in the league this season, insists that the fans have been the reason behind their progress.
