Tottenham are in the race to sign Borussia Dortmund’s central defender Matthias Ginter, according to the Bild.
We have been in the hunt for a new central defender as Kevin Wimmer could be on his way out of the club. The need for cover for our centre-back pairing of Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld is also important and Ginter does have it in him to become one of the best defenders in the world.
The 23-year-old could be a better option than some of the other players linked with a move to Spurs, such as Alfie Mawson but there are a few Spurs fans who are skeptical of the youngster signing up for us.
Ginter is a German international and will only get better with years of playing under his belt but moving to a new country and a new league is always a tough decision for any player. And if he does not perform, there will be a number of fans criticising the decision to move for him in the first place.
Nevertheless, there was a lot of buzz on social media regarding the move for Ginter and here are some of the best tweets.

Only thing Ginter can defend is his virginity

Some Spurs fans believe Ginter to be better than Wimmer. This is why watching players is important. Latter is so much more reliable.

Will throw a party once Ginter officially leaves the club. COYS, get it done

How much would Matthias Ginter cost us? Under 15m and it's a no brainer in my opinion. 23 and a very good ball playing centre half.
