On Tuesday, PSG announced that Tuchel’s contract had been terminated and it is understood that the club’s players are aware Pochettino will replace him.

PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaïfi thanked Tuchel and said the club “will remember the good times we shared”.

Talks between PSG and Pochettino started at least two weeks ago.

Tuchel, 47, became the Ligue 1 side’s boss in June 2018, winning two league titles, the French Cup and French League Cup.

PSG also reached the Champions League final for the first time last season, losing 1-0 to Bayern Munich.

Former Borussia Dortmund coach Tuchel’s contract was set to expire at the end of this season.

PSG are currently third in Ligue 1, a point behind leaders Lyon, while they are also through to the last 16 of the Champions League, where they will face Barcelona.

Pochettino, 48, led Spurs to the Champions League final in 2019 where they lost to Liverpool and he has been linked regularly with the PSG job in recent months.

He played for PSG between 2001 and 2003, and has been without a job since leaving Spurs in November 2019.
