The right-back is out of a contract next season, and earlier indications suggested that Manchester United and were leading the race in signing the 24-year-old.

However, the most recent reports regarding the Southampton man point to a move to as the north Londoners have been keeping close tabs on Clyne’s contract negotiations with the Saints and United appear to be looking elsewhere to fill their right-back void.

While Mauricio already possesses a nice option at right-back in , the Englishman has failed to produce quality outings since returning from injury earlier this season.

Meanwhile, Clyne has played for Pochettino in the past when the boss was roaming the sidelines for the Saints before moving on to Tottenham.

Clyne was also chosen over as Roy ’s preferred right-back for the national team.
