Mauricio Pochettino keen to sign Tottenham ace Dele Alli at PSG
PSG sacked Thomas Tuchel from the managerial hotseat earlier this week. Since then, speculations of Pochettinho taking over at the club have only intensified. The Argentine is currently unattached having left Tottenham in November last year. Having played at PSG in the past, he is the favourite to take over the reins next.

It was Pochettino who signed Alli at Tottenham from MK Dons and oversaw his development from a youngster with potential to one of the best attacking midfielders in the country.
However, the 24-year-old has seen his form dwindle over the past year and a half, which sees him out of favour under current manager Jose Mourinho. Alli has rarely been used by the Portuguese tactician this term, leading to speculations surrounding his future.
