Despite the club’s struggles this term, Lanzini has still impressed and he’s attracted interest from Liverpool and Everton.

The 24-year-old’s contract with the Hammers runs until 2020 and West Ham knocked back advances from Spurs last summer.

However, Pochettino remains keen on signing the playmaker and could move for him again in January, according to the Mirror.

Lanzini earns around £35,000-a-week in east London but Spurs could double his salary with a move across the capital.

David Moyes will be determined to keep Lanzini having just arrived at the club.

The Scot is said to be willing to let Marko Arnautovic leave to raise funds in order to reinvest in his squad in January.
