White Hart Lane side could usher in Argentine.
Tottenham are readying a move to bring in Southampton boss Mauricio Pochettino as a potential replacement for Andre Villas-Boas according to Sports Direct News.
The Argentine has done an excellent job since taking over from Nigel Adkins as Saints boss in January and could perhaps jump at the chance of a move to a ‘bigger’ club.
Pochettino has taken Southampton to the top six of the Premier League, with his South Coast side becoming increasingly hard to defeat, suffering just two losses in 12 Premier League fixures thus far this season.
Villas-Boas spent over £100m on new additions over the summer but have struggled for form, managing just nine goals in a dozen Premier League fixtures and currently sit in ninth spot.
The 36 year old manager lasted barely nine months in charge of Chelsea before he was sacked and took over at Tottenham in July 2012 and after taking the club to a fifth placed finish but Villas-Boas was expected to push onwards and upwards this term, despite the sale of Gareth Bale to Real Madrid.
Tottenham twice broke their transfer record over the summer to sign strikers Erik Lamela and Roberto Soldado but after securing 20 points from 12 games and following their worst defeat in almost 17 years there is growing pressure on Villas-Boas to turn things around as quickly as possible.
