Tottenham have recently been linked to RB Leipzig midfielder Marcel Sabitzer and the German club has hinted that the Premier League team’s interest in the 26-year-old is genuine.
According to Standard sport, a Marcel Sabitzer move would hinge on Dele Alli’s future at Tottenham.
The 24-year-old English international has fallen into the pecking order of the London club and has been linked to a departure from Tottenham in January.
If Alli decides to go ahead, Sabitzer could be a great alternative.
When asked about Tottenham’s interest in the player, RB Leipzig’s sporting director Markus Krosche said: “As I said, it has had a great development. It goes without saying that other clubs notice it too. “
The 26-year-old midfielder will add defensive coverage, drive and goals to Tottenham’s midfield.
Furthermore, his ability to play in various positions in the midfield will be an additional advantage for José Mourinho.
The midfielder has 18 months left on his contract with the German team and talks about an extension are unlikely to start until after the transfer window.
It will be interesting to see if Tottenham can convince the German team to cash in on the midfielder next month with a lucrative offer.
According to journalist Nicolo Schira, the Premier League team has already offered Marcel Sabitzer a contract until 2025 and Daniel Levy is ready to start talks with his club about a transfer.
