Luis Enriqué and Julian Nagelsmann are out of the running to be the new Chelsea boss.
Former Barcelona and Spain manager Enriqué flew to London for talks about the vacant position, but he is not on the shortlist of candidates.
Nagelsmann is said to have impressed the Chelsea Board when he met them, but discussions have now ended because the German decided to withdraw from the race. He is reported to have been uncomfortable with the decision making process at the club which he feels is at odds with his style of management.
Instead, Mauricio Pochettino is increasingly emerging as the favourite to take the job.
Pochettino has not worked since leaving PSG in the summer, but is available, and was interviewed at the same time as discussions were being held with Graham Potter.
