Tottenham fans are always a sad bunch during transfer windows. The Lilywhites always manage to leave the business late and often that can leave them empty-handed. Over the summer they signed no one, and now it looks like they’re set to repeat that, even if Bild are claiming they’re in the running for Timo Werner.
[@Bild_Sport] now understands RB Leipzig will allow Timo Werner to leave the club for a fee of £36M this summer should the forward refuse to sign a new contract.

Timo Werner is one of the hottest prospects in European football at the moment. The young German striker has everything that a top front man needs. His pace, finishing, ability to read the game and tenacity to get in and force himself chances are traits that would serve him well in the Premier League, and if Tottenham could pull it off it would be a massive coup for Mauricio Pochettino.
However, it’s much easier said than done to sign a player like Werner. The German is being looked at by a number of different clubs. Tottenham will be competing with Liverpool, Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund for his signature, not to mention that RB Leipzig will also be desperate for him to renew his contract. The Werner saga is only just beginning at the moment, and it would be a huge shock if Spurs came out the victors at the end of it.

Daniel Levy: £36m?! I only want one of him not 12 ffs.

He’d be perfect for us and Poch. So no chance this will happen.

Were more likely to sign Timo Maas

It’d be a great signing, but doubt it’ll happen. He’ll either go to Bayern Munich or follow the high wages.

It’s a bargain but it won’t happen cause levy is a tight git

The Lilyhwites have no faith in Levy pulling this one off, and who can blame them after their summer window last year.
