According to a report by Sky Sports journalist Lyall Thomas, dropping an enticing transfer claim on Twitter, he believes ‘Tottenham will look‘ into signing VFB Stuttgart Nicolas Gonzalez this summer as a possible replacement for Gareth Bale.
Gonzalez, who has earned a stellar reputation this campaign following a fine 2020/2021 season, is apparently on Spurs’ radar as this claim emerges from the Sky reporter.
Gonzalez eyed by Tottenham
This comes as Bale looks set to return to Real Madrid upon the expiry of his season-long loan deal in north London, as admitted by the player himself during a candid interview whilst on international duty.
The 22-year-old winger, who Fabrizio Romano labelled an ‘amazing talent‘, has scored six goals whilst assisting two others in 10 Bundesliga starts this season (WhoScored) – leaving little wonder why Spurs are allegedly keen.
Transfer Tavern take
According to Thomas, as he relays his report, Gonzalez isn’t the only name up for consideration either with Lille attacker Jonathan Bamba also being tracked by Daniel Levy and co.
Bale will eventually return to the Bernabeu as it stands but it is enticing that Spurs are already tracking possible replacements ahead of the summer window.
Time will tell whether Spurs land either of these names, however, it will be an interesting development to watch over.
