Report: West Ham have sounded out Mauricio Pochettino

West Ham United have sounded out Mauricio Pochettino amid speculation over David Moyes’ future at the London Stadium, according to a report from Jeunes Footeux.

Moyes has done an exceptional job in his second spell with the Hammers. And many will argue that the Scot deserves more time.

However, there is no question that results have not been good enough at the start of this campaign. West Ham currently sit inside the relegation zone in the Premier League.

The Telegraph reported this week that Moyes’ position may come under scrutiny should their struggles continue. However, there is said to be no immediate panic amongst the hierarchy.

Interestingly, reports in France suggest that West Ham are considering their options.

According to Jeunes Footeux, the Irons have sounded out Pochettino about a potential Premier League return. They also have other names on their radar.

Pochettino is a free agent after leaving Paris Saint-Germain in the summer. He enjoyed some success during his time at Parc des Princes. But it did appear that his tenure had run its course by the time his departure was announced.

His links with Tottenham would do him few favours if West Ham did appoint the Argentinian. But he also took Spurs to another level during his time in charge, culminating in a Champions League final.

Having said that, Pochettino’s stock has probably dropped a lot since his time at Tottenham.

He is an ‘outstanding‘ coach. And he would have the potential to elevate West Ham.

But West Ham fans will surely be hoping that Moyes can turn the side’s fortunes around and ensure that there is no need for any further speculation about his future.
