Spurs transfer news: Tottenham hold discussion with Julian Brandt’s father

The 23-year-old has a release clause of just £21million despite having two years left on his deal, and the report claims that Spurs are speaking with the player’s father.

Jurgen Klopp wanted to sign the German winger in 2017 before moving for Mohamed Salah, and the report adds that the Leverkusen star is being linked with the Reds again.

There is a lot of interest in Brandt, with Borussia Dortmund and Atletico Madrid also holding talks, according to the report.

Brandt’s best games have come in the wide positions and the German has formed a lethal partnership with Kai Havertz and Leon Bailey at Leverkusen.
