Tottenham Target Has A Release Clause Of Just £10.7 Million, But With A Catch



Tottenham target Julian Brandt has a release clause of €12.5 million (£10.7 million) according to German outlet Bild but there is a catch to it. The release clause only comes into effect in 2018 and that could mean another long wait before the youngster is signed by the club.

Julian Brandt

Brandt has been linked with a move to the Premier League in recent weeks and has also been on the radar of clubs such as Liverpool and Everton. The 20-year-old Bayer Leverkusen star has made 22 appearances for the German side in all competitions and has scored three goals and provided six assists this season.

There have also been reports by Sportbild suggesting that scouts had been sent by Tottenham and Everton to see how well Brandt is doing prior to the Bundesliga winter break. Brandt is certainly one of the brightest youngsters in the Bundesliga and certainly will ignite a bidding war for his services.

A bright attacking option for Tottenham

Tottenham have not had the best of signings when it comes to their attack this season. Moussa Sissoko and even Vincent Janssen have struggled to make an impact and Mauricio Pochettino could be looking to add some real quality at least for the bench with the signing of Brandt.

The 20-year-old certainly can add quality to the Spurs side and can be played in a number of positions. Brandt can play out wide or centrally and can even play as a makeshift striker, depending on the requirement for the side.

The youngster is also extremely quick and is great at dribbling the ball and providing accurate passes too. He would certainly fit in well with the Tottenham side but the German is not the most consistent player out there and certainly, if Tottenham tries to sign him up now, they will have to pay a bomb.

Lewis Holtby, most Spurs fans will remember him, certainly did not have the best career in the Premier League. The German was one of the best talents when he joined Tottenham a few years ago but his career faded away of late.

Brandt does need a little more time to develop and grow as a player. He might be playing regularly but he needs to keep learning and that certainly would take place under a manager such as Pochettino.

The major problem lies in the fact that German players don’t always end up moving outside the Bundesliga. It is even rarer for them to actually have a stellar career outside their own league and Brandt certainly would be a target for a few of the larger clubs in the Bundesliga like Dortmund or Bayern Munich.

Brandt to Tottenham could be a great deal for the London club but it does seem unlikely that the deal will be on the cheap.
