Five Tottenham players Pochettino could sign at PSG, if he replaces Tuchel

Mauricio Pochettino is reportedly closing in on a return to management after more than a year since he was sacked by Tottenham Hotspur and replaced by Jose Mourinho – with French champions Paris Saint-Germain.

Thomas Tuchel was sacked over the weekend and Italian transfer expert Fabrizio Romano has claimed that Pochettino has already put pen to paper on a PSG contract. He played for the French giants during as a player.

Could he return to Tottenham with the January transfer window upon us? Here are five Spurs players he could target, including a certain Dele Alli:

Dele Alli

Clearly, the England ace is unhappy at Spurs and the former MK Dons man has been linked with PSG. The 24-year-old has managed just 74 minutes of Premier League action under Mourinho – and a January loan could be ideal.

Serge Aurier

The right-back has improved with added competition of Matt Doherty, but spoke just last weekend over his love for PSG: “It’s the club I’ve loved the most out of all the clubs I’ve played for,” as per The Sun. A possibility, then.

The goalkeeper has been signed by Pochettino at Southampton and then at Tottenham as back-up goalkeeper. The Evening Standard claim Spurs are open to his exit following the signing of experienced England stopper Joe Hart.

Tanguy Ndombele

Ndombele has emerged as a crucial part of the Spurs side under Mourinho and scored in Sunday’s 1-1 draw. But he is still yet to hit the heights expected of him, and has been linked to PSG since being signed by Pochettino.

Lucas Moura

The Brazilian – also signed by Pochettino during his Spurs stint – was left out of the squad on Sunday against Wolves and has fallen down the pecking order. A return to PSG, the club Spurs signed him from, could be in the offing.
