Tottenham Hotspur: Sky Sports share Florian Grillitsch update -Tottenham Hotspur Transfer Rumours

As reported by Sky Sports journalist Marc Behrenbeck, relayed by Sky Austria, an update has come to light involving Tottenham Hotspur and Austria international Florian Grillitsch.

The Lowdown: Pochettino keen…

Back in the summer of 2019, former Lilywhites boss and fan favourite Mauricio Pochettino actually had his eye on the Hoffenheim ace who has gone on to become a mainstay in the Bundesliga.

Indeed, according to Sky Sports, the Argentine was eager to bring Grillitsch to north London during his last year in charge of the club as he searched for an heir to Mousa Dembele in his midfield.

Now, as per the same reliable source, it appears Tottenham are back in contention again.

The Latest: Spurs re-join race…

According to Sky reporter Behrenback, as relayed by SSA, Spurs have joined Roma and another former boss, Jose Mourinho, in the race to sign Grillitsch on a free transfer next summer.

His contract is set to expire in 2022 as things stand with the tough-tackling midfielder seemingly having no shortage of suitors for a transfer at the end of 2021/2022.

The Verdict: Get it d0ne?

The 26-year-old, who can play as a central defender or in a defensive or central midfield role (WhoScored), could come as an absolute bargain who may well fill many gaping holes in manager Antonio Conte’s team.

For free, this certainly seems like a move worth considering, especially since Grillitsch has averaged an impressive rate of 2.5 tackles per 90 in the German top flight so far this season (WhoScored).

Compared to Tottenham’s squad, only Emerson Royal has managed more, and Conte could certainly benefit from another combative presence in his team ahead of his first full season in 2022/2023.

Lauded as ‘extraordinary‘ by Bayern Munich boss Julian Nagelsmann, we strongly advise Tottenham to beat Mourinho to his signature.
