90min sources have confirmed that Chelsea are close to hiring Pochettino, although no agreement has been reached on a contract and there is still a lot to do.
The important thing is that Pochettino showed his real desire to take over the vacant position at Stamford Bridge, and the discussions with the Blues leadership left the impression that he has a real plan for the current team.
Along with Pochettino, a new striker is on the blues’ acquisition list, with Chelsea working for a long time on the recruitment of Victor Osimhen from Napoli.
An initial approach for Pochettino was rejected earlier this season, with the Argentine understood to have doubts about the structure at Stamford Bridge, but Chelsea have since added more experience to their squad behind the scenes and Pochettino is believed to has more confidence in the project offered.
His former links with Tottenham are not expected to be an issue with either the board or Chelsea fans.
While Pochettino is emerging as the favorite to take over at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea are continuing to do their due diligence on potential alternatives should talks with Pochettino fail.
Burnley’s Vincent Kompany, Sporting CP’s Ruben Amorim and Napoli’s Luciano Spalletti are among those with admirers at Chelsea, but the Blues appear to be focusing on Pochettino as he tries to end the uncertainty on the bench .
