Harry Kane linked with Southampton switch

Tottenham's most prolific striker this season could be shown the door as they step up their interest in Southampton star Jay Rodriguez.

According to the Mirror, Saints will ask for Harry Kane in exchange for their injured forward as part of a player-plus-cash deal. High-flying Southampton do not want to sell Rodriguez but will be wary of his contract expiring in 18 months and could decide to cash in whilst his value is still high.

Spurs' strike force has been misfiring so far this season but Kane is their top scorer with nine goals in all competitions. After last night's double for the under 21s, he currently has ten in ten appearances for club and country. Meanwhile Emmanuel Adebayor and Roberto Soldado have just three goals between them so it would be surprising if the Englishman was let go.

Saints could also renew their interest in Andros Townsend, who has been on the fringes at White Hart Lane and was approached by the south coast club about a move during the summer.

The winger has struggled to make an impression with boss Mauricio Pochettino and needs regular football to get back in contention for the national side.

Southampton's Head of Recruitment Paul Mitchell handed in his notice and is widely expected to join Spurs over the next few days, a deal which could make any transfer involving Rodriguez go through a bit quicker.
