Fabrizio Romano claims a contract between Poch and PSG has already been signed after the Ligue 1 champions axed Thomas Tuchel.
PSG are now set to confirm the ex-Tottenham man’s arrival in the dug out.
And Pochettino will soon meet with sporting director Leonardo to identify transfers target for both this month and the summer.
SunSport understands Spurs captain Hugo Lloris is a target for 2019 Champions League finalist Poch.
PSG also remain interested in Lloris’ team-mate Dele Alli after missing out on the midfielder in October.
And Poch would also like a reunion with Christian Eriksen after he was transfer listed by Inter Milan.
However, the priority is to convince Neymar and Mbappe to extend their current deals past 2022.
PSG face selling the star pair next summer to avoid losing them on free transfers if they snub new offers.
