The Argentine is keen on a return to Tottenham, 18 months after he was sacked by Daniel Levy and just six months into his stint at Paris Saint-Germain.
Levy has privately admitted sacking Pochettino was the biggest mistake of his career and the Spurs chairman hopes the Argnetine’s return would bring a feel-good feeling back to the club after a year-and-a-half of Jose Mourinho.
One of the major reasons Levy is keen on reappointing Pochettino is the feeling that he could heal a fractured dressing room and could persuade the likes of Kane and Heung-Min Son to commit their futures to the club.
Kane signed a six-year deal to stay at Spurs during the final year of Pochettino’s first stint at the club and the England skipper had a close relationship with the former Espanyol boss.
However, the Times claim Pochettino’s return would do nothing to dissuade Kane from his desire to leave the club.
The 27-year-old is yet to win silverware in his career and he’s concerned that Spurs will take years to rebuild, even if Pochettino returns.
The England skipper is wanted by Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea, with Kane said to favour a move to the Etihad.
Paris Saint-Germain maintain Pochettino will stay in the French capital and is happy to do so.
Pochettino signed an 18 month-deal at the club when he joined in January but reports in France claim he has since triggered a one-year extension, meaning his deal has been extended until 2023.
Roberto Martinez, Antonio Conte and Graham Potter have also been linked with replacing Mourinho.
