Luke Shaw, Adam Lallana, Jay Rodriguez, Dejan Lovren – all current or former Southampton players who were immediately linked with a move to Spurs as soon as Mauricio Pochettino was handed the manager’s job. One by one however, they’ve either moved elsewhere or faded from memory but if we are to make a purchase from the Saints squad, perhaps the man to sign up will be French international midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin.
According to the Express, 24 year old Schneiderlin was a confirmed target for Arsenal but the paper suggests that Spurs may have moved ahead in the race for the player’s signature.
The initial reports have emerged from France where it’s claimed that the Frenchman might actually be Pochettino’s favourite from his time on the South Coast. It’s an interesting thought but where would we slot in yet another midfielder? Who makes way?
