Graham Roberts insists that Mauricio Pochettino still loves Tottenham Hotspur.
Spurs opened talks with the Argentine amid their chaotic hunt for a replacement for Jose Mourinho.
They did not manage to lure the Argentine away from PSG at the time and moved onto Antonio Conte, although those talks fell through too.
Should Tottenham hire Pochettino?
TalkSPORT now claims that Spurs’ leading candidate is Nuno Espirito Santo, who left Wolves at the end of the season, but they claim that there is still interest within the club in rehiring Pochettino.
Roberts believes that the ex-Southampton boss still holds a real affection for the club he left in 2019, with his family still residing in the area.
Reports amid their first links with Pochettino claimed that he still wanted to return to north London and finally conclude his unfinished business.
And Roberts thinks that he may well be willing to make a return this summer.
Speaking exclusively to The Transfer Tavern, he said: “His family still live in north London, he loves the club, I think the chairman knows he made a mistake by letting him go.
“We keep our fingers crossed. I think Paris are looking to see who they can bring in first before they sanction anything so we keep our fingers crossed but it’d be really, really good for the club.”
