According to Gazzetta dello Sport (via sportslens.com), Tottenham are still interested in signing Marcel Sabitzer from RB Leipzig this summer.
The Lowdown: Spurs prepare for new campaign
While Tottenham remain without a permanent manager, Daniel Levy will surely be looking to bring in new players this summer.
The Latest: Spurs remain in the hunt for Sabitzer
Tottenham were heavily linked with a move for the Austria international last year (SportBild), but he ended up staying at Leipzig.
However, this latest report suggests they are still eager to sign him from the Bundesliga outfit. He was a strong target for Jose Mourinho, but he remains on the north London outfit’s radar even without the Portuguese boss in charge.
The Verdict: Top quality target
Sabitzer has enjoyed another impressive campaign with Leipzig. He scored nine times and provided seven assists in 39 appearances in all competitions (Transfermarkt) as he captained the team throughout the campaign. He will also be representing Austria at the upcoming European Championships. Such is his importance to Leipzig, journalist Archie Rhind-Tutt labelled him as a “lynchpin” earlier this year (inews.co.uk).
Would you like to sign Marcel Sabitzer?
With 109 goals to his name throughout his career for club and country despite being a midfielder, £37.8m-valued Sabitzer (Transfermarkt) could be a real threat in the Premier League. He has just one year remaining on his contract this summer, so the German side could face the decision of cashing in to avoid losing him for free next season.
In other news, Tottenham could sell this Champions League star this summer.
