Mauricio Pochettino is currently not hugely interested at the prospect of replacing Steven Gerrard at Aston Villa should the job become available as he would rather his next role come at former club Tottenham, 90min understands.

The West Midlands side have made an indifferent start to the 2022/23 season, and Gerrard has scarcely improved them since replacing Dean Smith last year.

While the club are insistent that Gerrard still has their full backing, 90min understands that Pochettino's camp have been contacted by intermediaries to gauge his interest should the job at Villa Park become available.

The Argentine's representatives would at least listen to any offer from Villa as they could potentially promise significant investment in the playing squad in the coming transfer windows.
