Mauricio Pochettino doesn't usually like to give too much away when it comes to his transfer targets.
It's safe to say he's on the hunt for a striker, but exactly who that is is a subject up for debate.
Yet, the Spurs boss has now given a big hint that he could be looking to his old club Southampton yet again, as he watched Shane Long in action for the Republic of Ireland on Friday night.

Pochettino was spotted in Dublin by The Telegraph conspicuously sitting in between his assistant, Jesus Perez, and Long's agent Pat Dolan.
And the latter will have been rubbing his hands as the forward grabbed his 16th goal for his country to follow up on another impressive campaign up front for the Saints.
Spurs are also reportedly interested in Marseille's Michy Batshuayi and Lyon's Alexandre Lacazette, but Long holds a significant advantage over the French pair in that he is proven in the Premier League. The two French clubs are also demanding hefty price tags, whereas Long could prove a cheaper option.
Southampton could face a torrid summer, with Sadio Mane and Graziano Pelle also in demand.
Elsewhere on Pochettino's radar at the Ireland vs. Holland game was Az Alkmaar's Vincent Janssen, another Tottenham target.
He was top scorer in the Eredivisie last season, but according to Sky Sports, Spurs may have to fight off champions Leicester City if they are to get their hands on him.
The Netherlands as a whole failed to impress against Ireland, and if his mind was to be made up on the night, Pochettino might well opt for Long, particularly as Spurs' Head of Recruitment Paul Mitchell, who was also in attendance, is another former Southampton man.
