Southampton are planning to once again go head-to-head with Tottenham Hotspur in regards to their transfer targets after revealing they will only let Jay Rodriguez move if Harry Kane and Andros Townsend are included in the deal, Mirror reports.
With Mauricio Pochettino targeting his former player, Ronald Koeman has placed a very ambitious reply in hopes of adding even more venom to his attack.
The Saints who were tipped to struggle this season after losing a number of their regular faces to other Premier League sides have overcome the odds and are now in second place four points behind leaders Chelsea, while Spurs are sitting in 12th.
Despite that, Kane has been in remarkable form this season and it seems highly unlikely that Pochettino will let him leave after earlier revealing that the club sees him as a vital member of the squad.
Townsend was a top target for Koeman during the summer window and with news of a potential swap, he will once again try to sign the pacey winger hoping he can come out on top with the addition of another member of Tottenham’s squad.
