Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly set to offer manager Mauricio Pochettino a bumper new deal. The 44-year-old Argentine still has three-and-a-half years to run on his current contract at White Hart Lane, but the club are determined to ensure he stays for longer.
Pochettino is rumoured to have attracted the interest of several rival clubs with his performances at Spurs, which have seen the club rise to second in the Premier League. The club's hierarchy are determined to ward off any interest before it is allowed to develop further.
The former Southampton manager is widely regard as one of the world's best young managers, and has been linked to the likes of Manchester United and Chelsea. Tottenham are, therefore, eager to see him commit to a new long-term deal with the North London club, according to ESPN.
Tottenham officials have reportedly indicated to Pochettino that they want to discuss a new deal with him. However, the club are happy to wait until the end of the season before trying to strike an agreement, as Tottenham chase Premier League and Europa League success.
Pochettino only joined Tottenham in the summer of 2014, but has quickly established a reputation for developing young players, having overseen the progression of stars like Dele Alli and Harry Kane at White Hart Lane.
