Tottenham are planning a £45million double ­swoop for Morgan Schneiderlin and Wilfried Bony.

The White Hart Lane club's new boss Mauricio Pochettino knows midfielder Schneiderlin from his time in charge at Southampton.

But Tottenham’s first approach has been re­buffed, so they will go back in this week with an improved offer of close to £20m.

Schneiderlin has made it clear he wants to go but the Saints value him at £27m.

Tottenham will also step up their pursuit of Bony.
