Tottenham are making precautions for a potential summer raid by Paris Saint-Germain for goalkeeper Hugo Lloris.
Former Spurs boss has agreed to take over the French giants and has been linked with a number of the players he worked with in North London.
Dele Alli has been touted as a potential target for the Ligue 1 Champions, with Pochettino’s arrival only set to strengthen links.
And now, Spurs stopper Lloris is reportedly a long-term target for the Argentinian and could be targeted in a summer move.
PSG currently have Keylor Navas in between the sticks but a move for the France international would prove popular at the Parc des Princes.
With that in mind, the Sun report that Jose Mourinho has a two-man shortlist to replace Lloris, should he leave the club at the end of the season.
According to reports, the Spurs boss could turn to Sam Johnstone or Dean Henderson in the event that he is in the market for a keeper.
Johnstone has been one of the standout performers in the Premier League – despite West Brom’s struggles at the wrong end of the Premier League table.
Meanwhile, Henderson is said to be growing ‘increasingly frustrated’ with his situation at Manchester United, as he fails to usurp No.1 David de Gea.
The England international was handed a rare start last month, but made a glaring error against former club Sheffield United.

Mourinho has hinted that any major changes to the Spurs squad will wait until the end of the season, despite them being involved in the title race.
Earlier this year he said: "It's time to work, it's time for evolution, time to affect the team.
"Not just the way we play but the way we think and sometimes the way we think takes more time than other things.
"I'm very happy with the squad.
"Of course next summer I will need to give another couple of touches but this is what you always do, improve your squad.”
