Tottenham Hotspur remain in fourth place in the Premier League table despite their recent run of inconsistency. 

Antonio Conte’s side have lost five and drawn one of their last 12 league games, including a disappointing 3-3 draw against lowly Southampton at St. Mary’s on Saturday.

Following that draw on the south coast, Conte produced an extraordinary rant during his post-match press conference, appearing to criticise the club’s players and ownership.

Since his outburst, speculation has been rife that the Italian will be sacked by chairman Daniel Levy, and a number of potential successors have been touted.

Now, it has emerged that Spurs have a plan in place.

According to Football Insider, those in charge of the club are lining up a move for former boss Mauricio Pochettino in an effort to persuade Harry Kane to stay put.

Pochettino could return to Spurs if Antonio Conte is sacked

The striker has been one of Europe’s most prolific forwards for several seasons now, but he has been increasingly linked with a move away from north London.

Two years ago the striker was linked with a move to Manchester City, but the move never materialised and Spurs are now hoping to keep hold of their talisman beyond the end of his current deal, which is due to expire next summer.

It is claimed that Kane has a superb relationship with Pochettino, formed when the Argentine was previously in charge of The Lilywhites.

Pochettino took charge of Spurs back in 2014 and spent five years with the club, guiding them to the Champions League final in 2019.

He was dismissed the following season, though, and has since spent time in France with Paris Saint-Germain.

After failing to win the Ligue 1 title during his first season in charge, Pochettino guided PSG to the trophy the following year before departing in 2022.

He is now being linked with a return to north London, while the likes of Thomas Tuchel and Marco Silva have also been linked with the club.
