AC MILAN are plotting an audacious move for Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino.

And the Serie A giants are hoping a whopping £300million summer transfer budget will lure Pochettino to Italy.

Milan are desperate to challenge the domestic dominance of Juventus and according to the Mirror see the Argentine coach as the man to lead them back to the top.

Ironically, former Arsenal chief Ivan Gazidis wants his old north London rival to quit the Premier League and join forces with him in Italy.

Time looks to be up for current boss Gennaro Gattuso as the Milan giants struggle to finish in the top four to secure Champions League football next season.

And having fought off reported advances of Manchester United and Real Madrid for his coach, Spurs supremo Daniel Levy will be ready to ward off another possible approach for his man.

Levy will hope Pochettino has everything he needs at Spurs to take them to the next level now they are in their new £1billion stadium.

The new stadium will have to be paid for but Pochettino has warned Spurs the facilities off the pitch must be matched on it.

He told talkSPORT last month: “I think we are now in a different level with our facilities – with our training ground and our new stadium – and now we need to be at the same level on the pitch.

“That is what the club and our fans deserve. We need to start to create more history for this club.

“Now is only about winning. This is a close of a chapter and we need to open another to try to be sure we are realistic competitors with all the big clubs who are competing for big things.”

Spurs failed to sign a single player last summer and the last time they paid a fee to add to the squad was £25m for Lucas Moura from Paris Saint-Germain in the January 2018 transfer window.
