Tottenham fans on Twitter have no faith in completing Timo Werner coup

Tottenham fans have all been left baffled as German outlet Bild has linked them with a move for Timo Werner, joining the likes of Liverpool and Borussia Dortmund in the chase for the RB Leipzig man. To secure his services it will likely take a bid of around 60 million euros (£53.8 million) and that’s why the Lilywhites are all baffled by it.

There is no doubting the abilities of Timo Werner. The young striker is everything that a top side needs. His pace makes him one of the toughest players in the Bundesliga to play against and when he gets in front of goal he very rarely misses, making it no surprise that he’s being so hotly pursued by a number of Europe’s top clubs. However, it would simply make no sense for him to make a move to North London.

Tottenham Hotspur currently have the best striker in the world in Harry Kane, and it’s hard to see a way that Mauricio Pochettino could possibly bring in another top frontman and manage to keep the two of them happy. Werner would not settle for minutes from the bench, and if he was to sign he wouldn’t be able to usurp Kane as the Lilywhites’ number one man at the top end of the pitch.

The Lilywhites would love to welcome Werner as a Tottenham player, but they simply have no faith in signing him as it doesn’t make sense financially and he isn’t what they need.
