Tottenham latest: Rodriguez and Schneiderlin close, could lead to Sandro exit

A selection of the latest stories surrounding Tottenham Hotspur this Tuesday evening.

Tottenham are closing in on Southampton duo Morgan Schneiderlin and Jay Rodriguez which will reunite the pair with their old boss Mauricio Pochettino.

They will become the third and fourth summer signings at White Hart Lane following the signings of Ben Davies and Michel Vorm from Swansea City. 

It has been said that Rodriguez and Schneiderlin could sign for a combined fee of £35 million and they would bolster the club's attacking and midfield options.

The London Evening Standard is reporting that the Saints duo signing could push Brazilian midfielder Sandro towards the exit door, given that he has been linked with a move to Serie A for much of the summer.

Another player that Tottenham have been linked with this summer is Swansea striker Wilfried Bony, and there are indications from Swans chairman Huw Jenkins that they are willing to listen to offers for the Ivory Coast international. However, there is a hint that Spurs could suffer if they wish to pursue the striker because they don't have Champions League football to offer.

Jenkins told TalkSport: “If a top Champions League club comes in, and puts the right offer on the table, then of course we will speak to him.

“There are no issues with Bony. He’s a great guy to have around the club.

“As much as we want players to stay with us for a number of years, we have to be open.”

Roberto Soldado has again been linked with a move away from White Hart Lane by the Daily Express.

The Express suggest that Inter Milan are interested in the Spanish forward who struggled during his first season at Tottenham.
