Chelsea have held positive talks with former PSG and Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino, according to a report on The Telegraph.

The report adds: “Mauricio Pochettino has boosted his candidacy for the Chelsea job following a series of positive talks between the Argentine and the Stamford Bridge club, who have now cut their shortlist down to four.

“Julian Nagelsmann remains one of the frontrunners to become Chelsea’s next permanent head coach, but now faces increasing competition from Pochettino, whose credentials are being carefully considered.”
