The Sun says Mourinho will tomorrow continue talks to become the new manager of Tottenham.
Spurs approached the former Manchester United manager early this evening evening to see if he was willing to succeed Pochettino in charge.
The London club sacked Pochettino just five months after he led them in the Champions League final with the club 14th in the Premier League.
And they immediately turned to Mourinho, 56, who spent the remainder of the night in talks with Spurs.
Both sides are confident they can reach a deal which would see him take charge before Saturday's crunch clash with West Ham.
