Chelsea are moving closer to an agreement to hire Mauricio Pochettino as their new manager, 90min understands.

Following Julian Nagelsmann's decision to withdraw from proceedings, Chelsea have been focused on the former Tottenham boss and arranged a further round of talks as part of their efforts to find a permanent successor to Graham Potter.

Sources have now confirmed that Chelsea are inching closer to hiring Pochettino, although a contract has not been agreed and there is still plenty of work to be done.
