Pochettino hoping for reunion with Southampton star


Tottenham have enjoyed an uncharacteristically quiet transfer window, but as always, chairman Daniel Levy will be keeping a close eye on developments on Deadline Day.

According to the Sun, the uncertainty surrounding Jay Rodriguez’s future at Southampton is of interest to the Lilywhites, with Mauricio Pochettino considering a reunion with his former player.

Spurs are hoping to strike a deal meaning the forward could join former Saints Victor Wanyama and Toby Alderweireld at White Hart Lane.

In turn, Southampton are pursuing Napoli’s Manolo Gabbiadini, and with Charlie Austin soon returning from injury, Rodriguez appears concerned that his game time is going to be limited.


Rodriguez will speak with manager Claude Puel today to establish whether he is still first-choice.

Pochettino could do with another attacking option having seen Vincent Janssen fail to settle, the Dutchman scoring just four goals, and all of them penalties, since his move from AZ Alkmaar in the summer.

Spurs have suffered already this season for over-relying on Harry Kane, and another proven Premier League striker would be a valuable addition.
