The France international has been linked with a move away from St Mary’s Stadium in recent weeks, with his exit potentially the sixth high profile sale the club could make this summer.
Spurs have been watching him closely, with Mauricio Pochettino keen to reunite with the player he coached last season on the South Coast.
It’s understood that the Londoners have already been unsuccessful with two offers for the 24-year-old, yet that has not deterred them.
A third bid is now in the pipeline, despite Ronald Koeman having insisted that his midfielder will not be sold.
Schneiderlin himself is known to be desperate to leave the Hampshire outfit, with the exits of Adam Lallana, Dejan Lovren, Rickie Lambert, Luke Shaw and Callum Chambers suggesting that the club can no longer match his ambitions.
It’s likely that Southampton will not even consider bids of below £20m for their man, with big money having been received for the aforementioned quintet this summer.
