Southampton interested in Osasuna coach Javi Gracia

Osasuna boss Javi Gracia is being linked with Mauricio Pochettino's job at Southampton.

The Mirror says Saints chiefs are aware that Pochettino has been unsettled since the departure in January of executive chairman Nicola Cortese.

Contingency plans are in place to recruit a new manager at St Mary's, with the Spaniard Gracia a leading contender.

Gracia, 43, is seen as an innovative coach in the same mould as Pochettino and is coveted by other clubs in La Liga after leading relegation favourites Osasuna in to mid-table this season.
