Chelsea eye move for Tottenham coach Mauricio Pochettino

- Mauricio Pochettino could be on his way to Stamford Bridge to replace Antonio Conte

- Chelsea owner Abramovich is said to have contacted the 46-year-old ex Argentine footballer

- Pochettino is the current manager of Tottenham and his side finished third at the just concluded EPL season

Tottenham gaffer Mauricio Pochettino has reportedly emerged as a summer transfer replacement for current Chelsea coach Antonio Conte.

The 46-year-old could leave Spurs in the summer with the Argentine said to be at loggerheads with Daniel Levy over his transfer budget.

According to the report by UK Sun, Mauricio Pochettino is aware of the interest from Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich for him to replace embattled Antonio Conte at Stamford Bridge.

Spurs have finished in the top four in the Premier League for a third straight season under Pochettino.

Last season, Antonio Conte led Chelsea to the Premier League title, but there are reports that the Italian would be sacked regardless of the Blues' FA Cup final result against Manchester United.

Chelsea have also failed to qualify for next season's Champions League, and their only chance of winning a title this term will be at Wembley on Saturday, May 19, in the FA Cup final.
