PSG's Qatari owners have been impressed by Pochettino's work in North London and how the Argentine has transformed Tottenham Hotspur into a notable force. Pochettino played for two years at Parc Des Princes during his career which make matters easy for the Parisians to lure Pochettino back to France.
