Reports from Spain have claimed that Mauricio Pochettino is a big fan of Barcelona midfielder Gavi.

According to Sport via Sport Witness, the Argentine sees the youngster as a ‘very interesting’ player for the Premier League.

Chelsea have been strongly linked with a move for Gavi this summer, as they explore the possibility that he may be available for free.

The La Liga side are currently going to be forced to unregister him from the first team squad for next season, and instead have him back on the youth team contract he is currently on.

Despite his sensational ability, described as ‘spectacular’ by manager Xavi, a mismanagement from the Catalan side could see them forced to lose out in the summer.

Pochettino really rates Gavi

This is where the Blues could step in. Reports have previously speculated that they have already held a meeting with the player’s agent ahead of a possible move.

Now, it has been claimed that the deal would likely get the seal of approval from Pochettino if he becomes the new permanent manager at Stamford Bridge.

The former Tottenham man is the current outright favourite for the role, with some expecting a decision to be made in the next few days.

Reports today have claimed that the 51-year-old already has in mind three positions where he is looking to strengthen, and a long-term partner to club-record addition Enzo Fernandez is certainly one of those.

Other midfielders have been linked with a move to West London too. It is more than likely that key target Declan Rice could finally be on the move at the end of the season.

As well as him, both Romeo Lavia and Moises Caicedo have previously been linked with a switch to Stamford Bridge.
