Southampton star would prefer to join Arsenal rather than Tottenham, claims Crook

first_imgtalkSPORT’s south coast football expert Alex Crook believes Southampton star Morgan Schneiderlin would see joining Tottenham as a ‘sideways step’ and would rather move to Arsenal.The north London rivals have both heavily been touted as destinations for the classy French midfielder should he decide to join the exodus from St Mary’s.But Crook thinks it would be a ‘strange’ move if the France international chose Spurs over a switch to the Emirates.“I’m not convinced Morgan Schneiderlin would swap Southampton for Tottenham,” he told Sam Matterface on Kick Off.“I think if Arsenal did make a firm bid, and they’ve been linked all summer long, he would go to the Emirates.
