Morgan Schneiderlin was a huge success during his time at Southampton, but the France international failed to do much of note at Manchester United, and his time at Everton so far has not been great either.
Schneiderlin’s performances so far this season have been underwhelming, and Everton fans have criticised him on social networking site Twitter (click here to read more).
January is still a fair few weeks ago, but Tottenham Hotspur should keep an eye on the 28-year-old France international’s situation and should consider making a move for him in the January transfer window.
With persisting injury problems over midfielders Mousa Dembele and Victor Wanyama, Schneiderlin could prove to be a valuable addition to the Spurs team.
True, England international midfielder Harry Winks is doing well for Spurs at the moment and the North London outfit are not missing Dembele or Wanyama, but things could change as the season progresses.
Schneiderlin has worked with Pochettino at Southampton, and the defensive midfieldes knows how the Argentine works and his system.
Spurs have to spend as much as £20 million to sign the Frenchman - that was the initial transfer fee that Everton had to pay Manchester United, according to Sky Sports - but the defensive midfielder could prove to be the difference between finishing second and winning the Premier League title.
