Tobi Altschaffl confirms Tottenham want Bayern Munich’s Marco Neppe

Tottenham Hotspur are supposedly interested in Bayern Munich’s technical director Marco Neppe, according to German outlet BILD reporter Tobi Altschaffl.

Neppe has been at Bayern since 2017 and oversees the club’s youth academy and scouting network. He has also played a vital role in the club’s transfer business, helping to bring in players such as Leroy Sane, Dayot Upamecano, and the surprising Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting.

Altschaffl claims that Tottenham are interested in Neppe as they look to appoint a new sporting director. The club have been without a sporting director since the departure of Fabio Paratici. This has seen them linked with several candidates, including Lee Dykes, Matt Hobbs, and Dennis te Kloese.

However, Marco Neppe would be a significant coup for Spurs, and would represent a major step up from the other candidates who have been linked with the role. He has a wealth of experience at one of the biggest clubs in Europe, and would be able to provide Tottenham with the direction and organization that they need.

Speaking about the situation, here is what Atschaffl had to say about Neppe being an option for Tottenham

“Tottenham is actually interested in Bayern’s technical director, meanwhile there is a loose request. Nothing is decided, Neppe was part of the squad planning for the new season at FC Bayern yesterday”

It is unclear whether Tottenham will be able to convince Neppe to leave Bayern, but the fact that they are interested in him is a sign that they are serious about finding a new sporting director. With a new manager in charge, Spurs are looking to build a team that can challenge for trophies, and a new sporting director will be key to that process.

Neppe would be a perfect fit for Spurs, and would be able to help the new manager build a team that can compete with the best in England and Europe. He is a highly respected figure in the game, and his appointment would be a major statement of intent from Tottenham.

Yes, there are other options out there but Bayern Munich seem to be going through a huge board restructure and this could mean that the German club will be willing to part ways with Neppe.
