Reports have claimed that Mauricio Pochettino is already under consideration for a new job in management despite only just joining Chelsea.

According to the Mail Online, the Argentine is a candidate for the England job, with that likely to become vacant at the end of this season.

Pochettino has only just got started at Stamford Bridge, with him being just four Premier League games into his time here.

He was the last man standing in a lengthy recruitment process over the summer as the new owners looked to replace Graham Potter in the hotseat.

There is plenty of promise about what the Argentine can bring to West London, following a very successful pre-season campaign.

Pochettino considered for England job

They went unbeaten in the United States for the first time in 12 years, and that brought plenty of promise surrounding what he could bring in the Premier League.

However, it has not lived up to the standard so far. They have just one win and two defeats in their opening four league games.

While this has of course not brought up any talk of a sacking yet, it is likely that poor form cannot carry on for too long before the pressure cranks up.

Now though, there is talk that he will be considered for the England job whether he is at Stamford Bridge or not.

It has now been claimed that Gareth Southgate is set to leave his post after the upcoming European Championships, and the FA will look to target some of the better managers in world football.

Another name who will seemingly be considered is Potter, who is yet to return to work since his Chelsea firing.
