Spurs Aim For Fresh Double Saints Swoop – reports

Tottenham Hotspur are chasing a double Southampton swoop in the January transfer window, having lined up both French midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin and his teammate Jay Rodriguez.

Ex-Saints boss Mauricio Pochettino has chased the duo heavily since being appointed manager of the north London club in the summer, replacing Tim Sherwood.

However, repeat attempts to sign both players have been unsuccessful.

The Daily Mirror is now suggesting that the White Hart Lane side are set to continue their pursuit of the duo going into the winter window.

This will, in part, be funded by a supposed £20 million transfer fund available to the Argentine manager.

Spurs have been disappointing in the Premier League, sitting in tenth after several weeks of football.

They are chasing Southampton, who headed into tonight’s clash with Manchester United in fourth place in the league, a surprising position given the pre-season predictions of relegation for Ronald Koeman’s side.
