Chelsea are keeping tabs on Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino as a potential replacement for Antonio Conte, according to the Telegraph.

Conte is expected to leave Chelsea at the end of the season despite the fact he could still finish the campaign in the top four.

The Blues also booked their place in next month’s FA Cup final with a 2-0 win over Southampton last weekend.

Fourth placed Spurs have the chance to stop Chelsea qualifying for next season’s Champions League – Pochettino’s men are five points ahead of their London rivals with four matches remaining.

Regardless of what happens, it’s likely there will be a vacancy at Stamford Bridge this summer.

And the Telegraph claims Pochettino is among the names on Chelsea’s managerial shortlist.

The Argentinian’s current contract with Tottenham expires at the end of next season, but the club is believed to be working on a new, improved deal for the 46-year-old.

With that in mind, it’s extremely unlikely Pochettino will leave Spurs this summer, especially for Chelsea – Daniel Levy will do everything in his power to make sure that doesn’t happen.
