According to The Daily Mail, Crystal Palace have launched a bid of £15 million to sign out-of-favour Tottenham defender Kevin Wimmer.

For months now many different rumours have circulated concerning Tottenham’s attempts to bring in defensive reinforcements and current Spurs centre-back Kevin Wimmer’s efforts to find a new club.

It had often been repeated that Wimmer would be allowed to leave the club once Tottenham had successfully lined up a replacement for the Austrian international.

Now that the signing of 21 year old defender Davinson Sanchez has been all but confirmed, interest in Wimmer’s signature has suddenly sky-rocketed with three different clubs appearing to have joined the race to sign the defender in the last few days.

Specifically Premier League interest is understood to be high in the 24 year old, with West Brom and Stoke City already reportedly circling the centre-back, but now The Daily Mail has revealed that Crystal Palace have stolen a march on both clubs with an opening bid of £15 million.

The defender who signed for Spurs from Cologne in 2015 for just £4.3 million is apparently valued at £20 million, which is a dramatic increase of worth since signing for the North-London outfit.

It is widely expected that Wimmer will leave the club in the near future, and even £15 million is a healthy profit of just over £10 million Spurs will have made on the defender’s departure.

Given the clubs rumoured to be interested in signing Wimmer, it appears the centre-back is likely to get his desired stay in England after all.
