Tottenham fans here inside the Football Transfer Tavern are gloating after hearing the news from Goal – that Spurs have beaten Arsenal to the signing of Koln defender Kevin Wimmer.
Personal terms and a £4 million fee have been agreed between the north London club and Bundesliga outfit Koln, subsequently quashing any hopes of Arsene Wenger signing the 22-year-old star.
As our landlord here in the Tavern quips, the centre-back will help bolster the club’s back-line which has looked very shaky at times this season.
Wimmer is renowned for his ability to be comfortable with a ball at his feet, and is also very astute at commanding the defence – something Pochettino’s side are in desperate need of.
A plethora of Spurs fans over by the dartboard here in the Football Transfer Tavern hope the Austrian defender will shore up the defence, and become a partner to Jan Vertonghen at the heart of the defence for years to come.
Spurs fans…. What do you make of this news? Would you like to see Wimmer join Tottenham? Let us know your opinions below!
