Fabrizio Romano: Liverpool and Manchester United could impact Tottenham Hotspur’s pursuit of Marcel Sabitzer

RB Leipzig star Marcel Sabitzer is a player who has been linked to Tottenham Hotspur for some time now. He gave a ringing endorsement of his abilities by scoring twice against us in the UEFA Champions League last season.

Julian Nagelsmann’s side are competing on multiple fronts this season. They are second in the Bundesliga and are also through to the last 16 of the UEFA Champions League. This has seen them dismiss chances of us making a move for Sabitzer in January.

A summer move looked likely but speaking on Chris Cowlin’s Youtube channel, Fabrizio Romano believes that could now be thrown into jeopardy thanks to Liverpool and Manchester United. Both teams are keen on RB Leipzig defender Dayot Upamecano, who is expected to leave in the summer.

Interested but not easy!

The Frenchman is the lynchpin of the Leipzig defence and is one of the best defenders in the league. With him looking set to move on, Romano believes Sabitzer will not be sold. The Germans are not keen on losing two key stars in the same window.

“They will make money with Upamecano and it won’t be easy to sign in the same summer also Sabitzer.”

Romano confirmed that Tottenham is indeed keen on Sabitzer. The Austrian fits the model of players Mourinho looks for and believes he is ready for the Premier League.

“A lot of clubs are interested, Tottenham are among these clubs just because Jose likes these kind of players, he has quality, he’s also a fighter, he’s running, he’s not just a quality, but he’s really like ready for Premier League football.”

Tottenham already have a plethora of options in midfield. Pierre-Emile Hojberg, Tanguy Ndombele, Harry Winks, Giovani Lo Celso, and Moussa Sissoko are vying for starting spots in midfield ahead of Dele Alli. They will need to get rid of a few options before being able to bring in Sabitzer. (h/t Express)

Whether that comes to fruition remains to be seen.
