After his dismissal, it is widely expected that former Tottenham manager, Mauricio Pochettino will take over, per Fabrizio Romano.

Pochettino has been out of management since his dismissal from Tottenham in November 2019.

He will be joining a club that demands success, and is still looking to grow.

The dismissal of Tuchel shows the level of success PSG expect. They aren’t just satisified with domestic honours, they’re looking to be successful on a European stage.
