Premier League giants Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with a move for Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder Florian Neuhaus.
A report from German outlet Sport1 has reported on Neuhaus’ current situation at Gladbach and it also links the midfielder with multiple clubs across Europe, with one of them being Spurs.
Should Spurs make a push for Neuhaus?
Spurs one of the clubs after Neuhaus
Sport1 talk about Neuhaus’ situation in some detail, saying that he is being hunted by numerous top European clubs. One of those clubs is Bayern Munich, who are once again favourites to win the Bundesliga with Betiton in Ireland and are now emerging as a serious competitor for the midfielder. The report also states that Borussia Dortmund are interested in Neuhaus but in order to afford the German, they would have to qualify for the Champions League and get the funds that come with it.
The report states that Neuhaus has a release clause of around €40 million (£35.5 million) which will come into effect from the summer transfer window. It also mentions interest from Spurs, who are said to be looking at the midfielder, along with Real Madrid. Neuhaus’ father though, happens to be a Bayern fan and the player himself isn’t in a hurry to leave ‘Gladbach.
The 23-year-old has been a regular for Gladbach this season, playing 25 games in all competitions. He has five goals, picking up six assists. In the Bundesliga, he has contributed to seven goals in 17 appearances for the Foals (as per Transfermarkt).
Gladbach boss Marco Rose has already hailed Neuhaus’ abilities:
Neuhaus would be a coup for Spurs
Neuhaus has completed 97 progressive ball carries in the German top flight this season and that ranks in the top 20 for all Bundesliga players this season. He has also played 82 progressive passes in the campaign, which also ranks in the top 20 in the division.
This shows that he thrives on progressing the ball forward. Spurs are midtable for progressive passes this season and they’re also fourth-worst when it comes to progressive carries this season. So signing Neuhaus could improve them in this regard and as such, he could be a suitable signing for the Lilywhites.
