Spurs already lining up Pochettino favorite to follow international striker deal

Spurs are already lining up a move to reunite Mauricio Pochettino with Southampton’s Victor Wanyama as they step up their pursuit of AZ Alkmaar’s Vincent Janssen, according to reports from the London Evening Standard.

The Lilywhites’ Argentine boss coached the powerful Kenyan during his time at St Mary’s Stadium, and the former Celtic enforcer worked well under his tutelage.

Links between Wanyama and Spurs were widespread last summer due to ‘Poch’s’ presence at White Hart Lane, and reports claim that the London club are once again keen on the 24-year-old.

The African ace is known for his holding qualities in midfield, which could boost the club’s chances of success as they make their first foray back into the Champions League for some time after a successful 2015/16 campaign.

Spurs are hopeful that a deal could follow their proposed move for Janssen, who is a £12m target.
