Jake Farrell spies a £14 million Spurs shaped solution.
Harry Redknapp’s propensity as a wheeler dealer is renowned. With the cash generated from securing Champions League football and a willing Chairman in Daniel Levy, Spurs are well placed to strengthen an already impressive squad. One man that could be on his way to White Hart Lane is the highly rated Werder Bremen winger Marko Marin.
The Bosnian born winger is a burgeoning talent and has been impressive for his club in the Bundesliga. Joachim Low has included him in his younger, more cosmopolitan squad for this year’s World Cup and has shown a confidence in the 21 year-old, bringing him on in both matches thus far, including the 1-0 defeat to Serbia in which the German coach turned to Marin with twenty minutes to play.
Marin could set Tottenham back around £14 million, although should he fulfill his potential, they could be securing one of Europe’s emerging talents. Pace and excellent technique are amongst Marin’s strong points although reports suggest that the physicality of the Premier League could be an issue for the diminutive German. Despite this, his range of abilities are impressive and the fact that he can be employed in a central play-making role as well as out wide will attract the Spurs boss.
Should Marin play a more central role in Germany’s World Cup campaign expect his price and the number of suitors professing an interest in his services to increase rapidly. With AC Milan and Ajax already expressing their admiration for the youngster, Tottenham could have to battle to get their man.
