Tottenham will make a take it or leave it offer to Southampton for wantaway midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin, as Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino attempts to raid his former club.
The French international midfielder was reportedly infuriated with Saints officials late last month when they blocked his potential move. And now, the Daily Mail, believes the North London club are going to return with one final bid.

The source suggests that Pochettino is determined to take his former player with him from the south coast but after a summer of big name departures Saints are reluctant to let another of their major assets go.
Schneiderlin has claimed that he has a gentleman’s agreement with the club to let him go but until now Southampton have held firm – although their resolve could be tested by Spurs’ final bid.
Southampton have already seen the likes of Adam Lallana, Rickie Lambert, Luke Shaw, Dejan Lovren and Calum Chambers leave the club during this transfer window – and they are determined to keep their remaining prize assets.
Despite his apparent unhappiness, Schneiderlin was in the starting line-up for Southampton’s game against Liverpool on Sunday.
