Tottenham Hotspur are trying to push through a shock transfer deadline day deal to sign Morgan Schneiderlin from Manchester United, according to The Daily Mail.
The White Hart Lane side look active in the market as the window draws to a close, with a host of potential targets touted in the press today.
The latest report suggests that Spurs have sent intermediaries to investigate whether Jose Mourinho’s men would be open to the possibility of selling the France international.

Schneiderlin has been on the fringes of the action this season so far at Old Trafford, with the world-record signing of Paul Pogba leaving the former Southampton man on the bench.
Mauricio Pochettino knows the box-to-box central midfielder well from their mutual time together at the St Mary’s Stadium and is believed to covet the Frenchman.
Spurs have already signed one of their manager’s former charges, Victor Wanyama, with potential scope for another ex-Southampton man to move to North London.
Whether United will be open to selling Schneiderlin remains to be seen.
