Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly plotting yet another bid for Southampton’s midfield machine Morgan Schneiderlin, their fourth since the transfer window opened this summer, as reported by the Daily Mirror.
The Saints have already been defiant in rejecting three bids for their important midfielder, but Spurs feel as though they can secure the signing of a player who developed considerably during current Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino’s time at the south coast club.
Southampton have previously suggested that it would cost a club more than the fee that took Luke Shaw to Old Trafford to sign Schneiderlin, which means the north London club would be looking at a fee of over £27 million to sign him.
It will not be easy for Spurs, however, as city rivals Arsenal are also known to be interested, with Arsene Wenger thought to be a big fan of the Southampton player.
However, there is no indication that Southampton are keen to sell, and Ronald Koeman sees him as a key part of his side, who currently sit fourth in the league.
