Mauricio Pochettino is currently in Los Angeles finalising his move to Chelsea.
The free agent is now in negotiations with Blues chiefs, including co-owners Todd Boehly and Behdad Eghbali.
Pochettino has entered talks on his own, deciding to negotiate without the assistance of an agent.
He is seeking to bring with him a four-man coaching staff and also wants influence on transfer decisions.
There is a hope inside Chelsea that an announcement can be made in the coming days.
