Tottenham Hotspur have reportedly ‘shortlisted’ the Leeds United defender Robin Koch as a summer target.

The 26-year-old German defender has been relegated from the Premier League with Leeds and he could look to make a move back to the top flight.

The opportunity to join Tottenham could be an attractive proposition for the defender and it remains to be seen whether the two clubs can come to an agreement.

As per Football Insider, the defender could be available for a fee of around £15 million and Tottenham certainly have the financial resources to pay the asking price. The reported asking price seems quite reasonable for a Premier League-level player and he could prove to be a bargain in the long run.

The north London giants will have to sign a reliable partner for Cristian Romero and the 26-year-old German could prove to be a useful option. Koch can operate as a central defender as well as a central defensive midfielder. His versatility could be an added bonus for Tottenham.

Koch has done reasonably well since his move to the Premier League and a move to Tottenham would be a major step up in his career.

It has been a disappointing season for Tottenham and they have missed out on Champions League qualification. They will be looking to get back into the top four next year and they must look to bring in a quality manager as well.

It is fair to assume that any transfer would have to wait until a managerial appointment has been made.

 

 

“I’d take him” – Former Spurs player names the defender the club should sign this summer – he will cost £40m

Former Tottenham Hotspur defender Michael Dawson has voiced his support for the signing of Harry Maguire from Manchester United.

Football Transfers had previously reported Tottenham’s interest in the English centre-back, with West Ham also registering their interest in him.

According to the report, Manchester United are eager to offload Maguire and would even consider a reduced price of £40 million for the player.

And now, Dawson has given his backing to the potential move, stating that he would sign the defender if he were in charge.

Speaking on Sky Sports, Dawson said:

“There will be a lot of takers for Harry Maguire. I’d take him at Spurs tomorrow.”

Maguire joined Manchester United in 2019 for a record fee of £80 million, making him the most expensive defender in the world.

However, his time at the club has been marked by disappointment, as he has struggled to live up to his price tag and expectations.

Under manager Erik ten Hag, Maguire has further fallen down the pecking order, with even Luke Shaw being preferred over him.

Tottenham Hotspur are expected to sign a couple of center-backs in the upcoming transfer window, with Eric Dier and Davinson Sanchez likely to leave.

While the club was linked with top-class defenders under previous manager Antonio Conte, their current unstable situation and absence from the Champions League next season could make it challenging to attract high-profile players.

In this context, Maguire could be considered as a viable option, offering substantial Premier League experience to Spurs. Despite his struggles at Manchester United, his potential arrival could improve the team’s defense.
