Rumour Mill: Difficult To Sell Wimmer For £20 Million

According to his agent, Kevin Wimmer will struggle to find a new club due to the high price-tag placed on the defender by Spurs.

Despite impressing during his debut season at Tottenham, Kevin Wimmer has since failed to earn a place in Mauricio Pochettino’s plans and now looks set to depart the North-London club this Summer.

However, according to Wimmer’s agent Jurgen Werner, the 24 year old will struggle to find a new home in the upcoming transfer window, due to the hefty £20 million price-tag placed on the Austrian. He told German website Sprox:

“Spurs still see him as a talent. There was also interest from Germany or Italy but, because of the price, it is difficult for all clubs outside the Premier League.”

“We have to see what is happening on the English market.”

The Express claims that a number of teams are interested in a move for the young centre-back, but fails to mention any names.

I think what we’ll likely see here is for Spurs to identify and all but confirm a replacement for Wimmer, and then we’ll see his price-tag drop. Wimmer will only leave when Tottenham are confident they have his boots filled.

And right now it’s better to put him in the shop window than telling clubs to wait. So I reckon Wimmer will eventually be sold for roughly £8-12 million, when we’ve snapped up a Veltman or the likes.

Do you think I’m wrong? And how much do you think Wimmer is worth?
