Mauricio Pochettino is reportedly interested in potentially replacing under-fire West Ham United manager David Moyes. 

Following the east London club’s previous Premier League game which saw them drop into the relegation zone after losing 2-0 against Tottenham Hotspur, Moyes and his position in the West Ham dugout is reportedly under pressure.

In fact, it has since been reported that should the Hammers lose their upcoming league match against Nottingham Forest, the Scotsman will be sacked.

This has apparently led to one former Premier League manager setting his eyes on the potential opening at West Ham.

According to a recent report from Football Insider, Pochettino is interested in taking the Hammers job should it become available and the West Ham board are aware of his interest.

Having managed in the Premier League previously with Southampton and Spurs, the Argentine has won 132 of the 256 top-flight games he has overlooked, drawing 61 and losing 63.

The 50-year-old even took Spurs to the Champions League final back in 2019, which they ultimately lost to Liverpool.

Domestically, Pochettino took Spurs to a second-place finish at the end of the 2016/17 Premier League season which saw them win 26 of their 38 games, with eight draws and four defeats.

His latest managerial stint saw him take charge of Paris Saint-Germain between January 2021 and July 2022, winning 56 of his 84 games across all competitions.

Described by Brendan Rodgers as an “exceptional” manager, Pochettino has apparently rejected the chance to replace Graham Potter at Chelsea in recent weeks, despite previously sharing his aim to one day return to managing in the Premier League.

Given the experience he has of managing in England as well as coaching top players such as Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappe and Neymar to name a few, should West Ham find themselves getting rid of Moyes, they should definitely look to bring Pochettino in as their next long-term manager.
