Earlier this month it was a report originating from Kicker that started the ball rolling after claiming that Pochettino is on Bayern's radar as they look for a permanent successor to Carlo Ancelotti, who was sacked in September following a poor start to the season.
With 72-year-old interim Jupp Heynckes seemingly unlikely to stay on beyond the initial terms of his temporary agreement, Bayern need to land a new boss.
Now, a report from SportBild has taken Kicker's story further by claiming that Pochettino has been contacted by Bayern after being put forward as a candidate club president Uli Hoeness and chief executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge by sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic.
It is said that while the Bayern board are keen on the idea that whoever they hire as the new head coach must speak German, Salihamidzic has 'always had a different opinion'.
SportBild notes that prising the 46-year-old away from Spurs is likely to be a challenge, especially as he remains tied to a long-term contract until 2021. The only way to break that would likely be to offer the London club a compensation figure north of €10m.
Just how determined Bayern would be in pursuit of him remains to be seen.
