According to journalist Dharmesh Sheth, the 51-year-old Argentine manager could look to make a move for the Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane at the end of the season.
The 29-year-old England international has been linked with a move away from Tottenham, especially with just 12 months left on his contract at the end of the season.
If Kane does not sign an extension with Tottenham they could be under pressure to cash in on him this summer. They will not want to lose a player on a free transfer next year.
Clubs like Chelsea and Manchester United have been linked with the player and Dharmesh Sheth believes that Pochettino could certainly try and sign England international in the summer.
He said to GiveMeSport: “Would Chelsea want him? Would [Mauricio] Pochettino want him? 100% yes. Would he go? Probably not. Two reasons, Tottenham probably would not want to do any business with Chelsea and I don’t think Kane would do that to the Tottenham fans either.”
Chelsea are in desperate need of a proven goalscorer and Kane could transform them in the final third. The Tottenham striker is one of the best players in the world, and he has 27 goals across all competitions.
The journalist believes that Tottenham are unlikely to do business with Chelsea because of the rivalry between the two clubs and a move to Manchester United would probably be a more acceptable situation for Tottenham fans.
Furthermore, he also added that Harry Kane is unlikely to move to Chelsea because of his bond with the Tottenham fans.
