Tottenham Receive Green Light To Sign Right-back For Cut-price Deal

Published

on

There is growing concern about the lack of transfer activity at Tottenham, and this concern has especially been fueled by other clubs spending significant money in the window. After having achieved a second-place finish in the Premier League last season, Spurs were expected to build on and potentially challenge for the title or win a major trophy this season. Yet, chairman Daniel Levy and Mauricio Pochettino have so far been extremely quiet in the transfer window, while they have gone ahead and sold one of the top players from last season – Kyle Walker.

We have been linked with a number of players in this window, yet, there has been no arrival till date. There seems to be joy for Spurs at last, as most of the competition is out of the race to sign Jeremy Toljan. The Hoffenheim left-back, who can also play as a right-back, is one of the key transfer targets for the club, and he has been watched by a number of names from across Europe. Among the latest to be linked are Portuguese giants Benfica, but it appears like they have pulled out of the race, according to Portuguese newspaper Record (via Sun).

The latest development in our pursuit of the fullback is that we could land the player for as cheap as £3.1m. The Evening Standard claims that we could complete a cut-price £3.1m deal for the promising defender.

Hoffenheim are also growing increasingly concerned that they may not be able to retain Jeremy Toljan beyond the summer. The player only has 12 months left on his contract, and it would not be a good financial decision to lose him on a free transfer. Hoffenheim did not spend much money in acquiring him from Stuttgart youth setup back in 2011. After spending time in the youth and the reserve teams of Hoffenheim, Toljan made the promotion to the first team in 2013. Since then, he has been making rapid development.

Last season, the 22-year-old made 21 appearances in all competitions, 14 of which were from the start. Even then, he managed to come up with one goal and one assist, while managing 1.5 interceptions per game. He was also part of the Germany U-21 side that won the UEFA U-21 European Championships earlier in the summer.

After having lost Kyle Walker, Spurs are in desperate need to strengthen the right-back position. Kieran Trippier was a good backup for Walker last season and it remains to be seen if he will be able to step up on a permanent basis.

    If Toljan is a good player there would be other European clubs going for him. Benfica have pulled out but if they really wanted him they would still be in the race for him.

    Tottenham from now on are not a selling club. Walker was only sold because Poch didn’t want him. He was a disruptive influence.
