According to Italian websites calciomercato.com and fedenerazzurra.com, Tottenham's coach is contemplating signing the Argentine midfielder, who has now left Inter after ten years on not being offered a contract extension.
Pochettino and Cambiasso played together in the Argentinian national team from 2000 to 2002, so Tottenham's coach is aware of the 32-year old's qualities, and his experience both domestically and in Europe could help bring more consistency to a Tottenham team that blew hot and cold last season.
Cambiasso appears to be open to a new challenge, and has retained his hunger and fitness - he was a regular starter for Inter Milan during last season. A disciplined professional, he spent 10 scandal-free years at Inter and would be a good role model for some of Tottenham's younger players.
Available on a free transfer, Cambiasso would represent value-for-money - something high on Chairman Daniel Levy's list of priorities right now. He is also a typical Pochettino signing - a seasoned professional who will work well with developing talent.
