Transfer News: Tottenham face Liverpool, Man United competition for Marcel Sabitzer

According to German news publication BILD (h/t Daily Mail), Tottenham are set to face competition from Liverpool and Manchester United in the transfer race for RB Leipzig star Marcel Sabitzer.

Sabitzer, 27, has been with Leipzig since 2014, having joined from Austrian club Rapid Vienna. After a spell on loan at RB Salzburg, the central midfielder has been a permanent fixture for the German outfit, playing a key role in their rise from the lower divisions to one of Bundesliga’s top teams.

Indeed, Sabitzer was critical to Leipzig finishing second in the league last term along with their run to the UEFA Champions League semi-finals. Appointed the club captain this term, the versatile midfielder has carried on in the same vein of form, registering seven goals and six assists in 31 games in all competitions.

Sabitzer’s ability to perform in multiple roles in midfield as well as attack, coupled with his experience and leadership, have made him a target for Tottenham Hotspur for a while now. Someone like the Austrian would be the ideal midfield partner for our last summer signing Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg.

However, Tottenham are now set to face competition from both Liverpool and Manchester United for the transfer of Sabitzer.

Sabitzer’s contract with RB Leipzig runs out in the summer of 2022. And they are reluctant to lose him on a free next year. So, the Bundesliga giants are likely to entertain offers this summer, with an asking price of £36m being reported.

The report does add that Tottenham seem the likeliest destination for Sabitzer, which is good news, considering that the club has been pursuing him for a while now. And at that price, a player of his quality entering his peak years could be a brilliant transfer.
