Tottenham are leading Manchester United in the race to sign Southampton's Adam Lallana.

The Daily Mail suggests the north London side have stepped up their interest in the 25-year-old England international in hope that they can pip the likes of Manchester United and Chelsea to his signature.

Reports had claimed Manchester United were preparing a £50million double bid to sign Lallana along with first choice left-back target Luke Shaw.

However David Moyes could again be set for a difficult transfer window as Tottenham are planning to outbid the Premier League champions.

Lallana could in fact join Southampton boss Mauricio Pochettino in swapping St Mary's for White Hart Lane in the summer.

Current Tottenham manager Tim Sherwood will reportedly leave the club at end of the season - despite only signing a two-year deal in December - and Pochettino is said to be at the top of Daniel Levy's managerial wish-list.

Pochettino's possible arrival at White Hart Lane could aid Tottenham's chances of landing Lallana, who is said to be valued at around £20million, ahead of the likes of Manchester United, Chelsea and Manchester City.
