Arsenal are keen on making Mauricio Pochettino their new manager after they fired Unai Emery on Friday.
Several managers from the great to the inexperienced have been linked with the job. The likes of Mikel Arteta, Brendan Rodgers, Carlo Ancellotti and Max Allegri have all been mentioned.
One name that has also been added to the list has been that of former Tottenham boss, Mauricio Pochettino.
Most football fans and analysts who know the rivalry between the clubs would not even consider such a move, but reports from subscription-based the Athletic via 101GreatGoals claim that the Argentinean is in the running for the job.
Poch spent five years at Tottenham and helped them become a top-four side as well as reach the final of the Champions League last season.
He was replaced by Jose Mourinho last week, but his reputation in England with Southampton and Tottenham means he won’t struggle to get a new job and Athletics’ David Ornstein claims he is ‘viewed by Arsenal as a credible option to become their next permanent head coach after the sacking of Unai Emery.’
The big task for Arsenal would be to convince Poch to make the move across North London after he has claimed in the past that he cannot manage Spurs’ biggest rivals.
On a personal level, I just do not want to see him in the dugout at the Emirates as regular readers on here know. However, it does seem that the club is definitely keen.
