Despite being linked with a host of jobs, including Real Madrid and Barcelona, Poch is to be named PSG chief following the sacking of Thomas Tuchel.
The German boss was given the boot just before Christmas on the back of a 4-0 thumping of Strasbourg with PSG one point off the top spot in Ligue 1.
Earlier on Saturday, Pochettino arrived at PSG’s headquarters to finalise the deal.
They tweeted a video captioned: “Welcome Mauricio Pochettino.”
The club then released a statement which read: “Paris Saint-Germain is pleased to announce the appointment of Mauricio Pochettino as it’s new head coach.
“The Argentine has signed a contract with the club from the French capital until 30 June 2022, with an option for an extra year.”
