Pochettino in line to replace Antonio Conte

Tottenham Hotspur: Kyle Walker-Peters signs new contract

Roman Abramovich has identified Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino as the ideal candidate to take over from Antonio Conte.

Pochettino once again refused to be drawn on whether he will remain at the Spurs helm next season, after his side's thrilling win over Leicester at Wembley sealed a third-place Premier League finish. Some tipped Spurs to drop out of the top-4 given their Wembley woes and after a dire start to life at the national stadium, they quickly got their act together and guaranteed a Champions League return with a 1-0 win over Newcastle on Wednesday night.

"We need to talk a lot between us and the club. We need to think that our reality is different, and our fans need to think and be happy and support us, because we are not this type of club that is going to invest insane money".

Pochettino called on Spurs to "create a different idea" and said the club needed to be "brave and take risks" in order to challenge for the top honours next season.

"That is a little bit up to Daniel of course, to the club, to be happy with us, because after four years I think we need to assess that period".

"Our fans need to know what we are going to do and our fans need to feel the reality of the club and we need to tell the truth and create a very good expectation we can achieve".

The Frenchman has the quality to fit in anywhere along the Spurs frontline, and the promise of first-team football could prove to be the crucial pulling factor Pochettino needs to convince Martial away from Manchester.

Just when Vardy thought his brace would be enough to snatch victory for Leicester, Kane resurfaced to reassert his authority as England's premier poacher.

The London club have been linked with high-profile replacements such as Luis Enrique and Maurizio Sarri, and Pochettino is another leading candidate if Conte left.

And it was Vardy who gave Leicester an early lead with three gone when he met a free kick on the angle by the near post and guided a header home.

Alderweireld, 29, has been one of the top centre backs in England over the last three seasons and would improve any of those defences. Lucas Moura reacted to a sloppy ball from Foxes captain Wes Morgan and his decent interception allowed Kane to set off on one of his trademark, bustling runs.

"The better players will maybe then be looking [to leave]".
