The battling midfielder will surely be considering his St Mary’s future in view of the departure of Pochettino as well as Luke Shaw, Rickie Lambert and Adam Lallana and could be tempted by a move to north London.
Pochettino has a fair few central midfield options but may feel Schneiderlin is a superior performer to the likes of Sandro and Etienne Capoue.
Schneiderlin moved to the south coast from Strasbourg six years ago and has helped Southampton from League One to the upper reaches of the Premier League so a move away from the club may not be an easy choice to make but one imagines it’s one he is ready to consider not least as a high-profile transfer could further aid his push for a prominent role in Didier Deschamps national team set-up.
Spurs chairman Daniel Levy may well insist that Pochettino sells before he buys given the £110m that was invested in the club’s squad a year ago under former boss Andre Villas-Boas.
