PSG set to hire Conte should Pochettino leave

French giants Paris Saint-Germain will turn their attention to Antonio Conte if Mauricio Pochettino leaves the club.

The Argentine has been linked with his summer transfer despite a missed opportunity to join Man United following the appointment of Ten Hag by the English giants.

According to The Times, the former Tottenham boss is set to be relieved of his duties in the French capital soon, as he reports that Conte has declared his interest in the job should Spurs fail to reach the top four.

The north London side are currently one of the favorites to last win the Champions Lague in England, but Arsenal have their neck in the same place too after losing points to Brentford over the weekend.

Reports claim that PSG ownership still favors appointing Zinedine Zidane as their next manager, but the Frenchman’s reluctance to take up the job is a concern for the club as it wants to plan for next season as soon as possible.

Pochettino has been linked with a return to Tottenham as the club was said to have tried to recruit him last summer.
