Agent Confirms €6 Million Tottenham Star Wanted By Cologne, Interests From Premier League Clubs As Well

Watford v Tottenham Hotspur - Premier League

Austrian Kevin Wimmer arrived with a lot of expectations when he moved from FC Cologne in the summer of 2015 for around €6 million. However, he has never been a first-team regular under Mauricio Pochettino. While it was initially thought that the versatile player was being given an opportunity to settle at new surroundings, he has never been a part of the starting line-up at Spurs. This season, Wimmer has made only three Premier League appearances and he has fallen down the pecking order. Now, it is also difficult for the 24-year-old to make his way ahead of the existing first-team regulars given Spurs’ being on an incredible form of late.

The club’s six consecutive victories have helped them move within seven points of table leaders Chelsea, while also moving past Liverpool and Manchester City in the process. Wimmer appears to be unhappy at White Hart Lane so much so that his agent has been looking at clubs who could be potential future destinations for his client. Wimmer’s agent has claimed that there is a lot of interest from several clubs. He said:

“Cologne made an offer. There have been a few offers from the Premier League and the Bundesliga. There is a lot of interest. Agent Mithat Halis  told ESPN FC

“Tottenham do not want to sell. All offers have been turned down and he is staying.”

But the 24-year-old may actually be quite happy if he ends up staying at least until the summer. This is due to the injury to defender Jan Vertonghen, which is looking extremely serious and could put the built-in international out of action for around two months. Considering that Tottenham will be involved in the FA Cup fourth round and Europa League games aside from the Premier League during this period, Wimmer could actually get several first-team opportunities over this period. This may very well quench his thirst for the first-team action.

However, it is also possible that Pochettino may look at other options like using Eric Dier as the replacement for Vertonghen. Dier was a solution for the team when Toby Alderweireld was injured for almost 2 months in the first half of the campaign. There is a high possibility that the Spurs manager may do a repeat of the same, but with only Dier playing on the left side of the centre-backs.

It was previously thought that his former club FC Cologne were one of the interested parties. However, the German outfit recently revealed that there was no truth in the rumours about their interest in Wimmer. At this point, the player’s agent suggesting that Cologne are one of the interested parties does raise a lot of suspicions. Spurs, though, remain in complete control and the club clearly do not want to sell the defender. Their commitment to the cause was displayed a few months ago when Wimmer signed a new contract with the North London outfit. This new contract will keep him at the club until the summer of 2021.
