5. Tottenham to lure German trio?
Tottenham Hotspur is set to lure players from Germany, according to British papers today. Spurs have sent their representatives to Germany for the transfer swoop.
The Bundesliga trio of Timo Werner, Sven Bender and Christoph Kramer are on their wish list.
Timo Werner, a 19-year-old striker currently playing for Stuttgart, can play at the wings or as a central striker, has blistering pace to outrun defenders and could cost around £8-10 million, whereas Sven Bender plays in defensive midfield and is undoubtedly one of the most promising youngsters in his position, currently playing for Borussia Dortmund. 24-year-old Kramer is known for his international debut in the World Cup final where he suffered a serious head injury in a clash. He is also tipped as Schweinsteiger’s future replacement. The Bayer Leverkusen midfielder will cost them around £6-7 million.
Tottenham manager Pochettino has admitted he wants to add one more striker and midfielder before the new season gets going.
