Transfer News: Tottenham receive boost in their pursuit of Marcel Sabitzer

According to transfer news from Express, Tottenham have received a huge boost in their pursuit of Marcel Sabitzer. The Austrian is said to be holding off contract talks with RB Leipzig hoping that he will get an offer from Spurs.

The 27-year-old has grown into one of the best central midfielders in Bundesliga in recent seasons, helping RB Leipzig achieve great heights. Indeed, Sabitzer was a permanent fixture in the side that finished second in the league and made it to the semi-finals of the Champions League last season.

Sabitzer has enjoyed another similarly fruitful campaign, with his club once again sitting second in the table, with a narrow chance of winning the title. His rise in stature with the German outfit has led to a serious interest in the midfielder from Tottenham Hotspur.

Spurs are looking to add another midfielder given they usually play three in their starting XI. Tanguy Ndombele and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg are the two first-choice players now and the third spot is still up for grabs.

Sabitzer is set to enter the final year of his contract with RB Leipzig. The Austrian international is not expected to put pen to paper on a new deal as things stand (h/t Express). He has the ability to be the perfect partner in the middle of the park for Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg at Tottenham. It now remains to be seen if we are able to get a deal over the line.
