Tottenham and West Ham United to battle for Robin Koch

According to a report from The Sun (h/t Football.london), Tottenham Hotspur are very much keen on signing SC Freiburg defender Robin Koch, but face competition from local rivals West Ham United.

The 24-year-old Koch spent time at the academies of FC Kaiserslautern, SV Dorbach and Eintracht Trier before returning to Kaiserslautern in 2015. After spending two years at the club, he joined Freiburg in 2017 and has since become a key member of the team.

Robin Koch is a target for Tottenham

Till date, he has featured 87 times for Freiburg across all competitions, scoring five goals and setting up two more. Primarily a centre-back, Koch can slot in equally effectively in a defensive midfield role, which he has done on multiple occasions for the German outfit.

With Koch’s contract expiring in less than a year, his future has been a subject of intense speculation. Tottenham are among the clubs interested in securing the transfer of the 24-year-old German defender.

Having lost Jan Vertonghen following the expiry of his contract, we are in need of strengthening our backline in the ongoing transfer window. In addition, Juan Foyth has been heavily linked with an exit as well, which would further reduce the options at Jose Mourinho’s disposal.

To that end, Koch would be a handy addition to the squad. A reliable option at the heart of the defence, he can also provide depth in the defensive midfield role as well, making him a viable target for us.

In addition, the fact that Koch is in the final year of his contract means, he wouldn’t cost a fortune either. But, we will have to stave off competition from local rivals West Ham United. As per the report, the Hammers’ manager David Moyes is intent on signing the two-time capped German international.

It remains to be seen if the interest in Koch leads to anything significant in the coming days.
