AC Milan are the latest club to be linked with a summer move for Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino – and ironically it is an ex-Arsenal man who is behind the proposed swoop.
Former Gunners chief executive Ivan Gazidis is now in charge in Milan, and he and his board have identified Pochettino as the preferred successor to Gennaro Gattuso reports The Daily Mirror, who is likely to leave the San Siro in the summer, after another trophy-less season, with the club now struggling to qualify for the Champions League.
To tempt Pochettino to make the move from North London, Milan are ready to offer him a summer transfer kitty of £300 million, as they look to regain their place at the top table of Italian football, after a decade which has been dominated by Juventus.
Spurs for their part will be hoping that now they have finally moved into their new stadium that Pochettino will be prompted to stay, having already been linked with the Real Madrid and Manchester United jobs this season.
