Spurs centre-back Kevin Wimmer is reportedly a transfer target for his former side Koln, whom Tottenham signed the 24 year old from in 2015.

According to German newspaper Bild, Kevin Wimmer may be set for a return to his former Bundesliga side Koln, having started just 4 games in the Premier League in this his second season with Tottenham.

The Austrian centre-back had impressed in his first season with Spurs, having stepped in to replace an injured Jan Vertonghen for much of the second half of the season, following a £4.3 million move from Germany. Now, however, Wimmer seems to be surplus to requirements at Spurs, given the form of Vertonghen, Alderweireld and Dier in defence, as well as the emergence of 19 year old Cameron Carter-Vickers.

Koln had been reportedly interested in a loan move for Wimmer in January, but will now be looking to strike a deal for a permanent transfer, according to Bild. The reports failed however to mention a possible price-tag on the Austrian or whether any contact had even been made.

This rumour coincides with the developing rumours over Tottenham’s reported interest in Hull City defender Harry Maguire. Which would you prefer? Keeping Kevin Wimmer, or making a move for Harry Maguire?

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Maguire is not a like for like replacement for Kevin Wimmer.
    Wimmer is left footed and plays if Vertonghen is injured as left sided centre
    back. Harry Maguire is very right footed. The only similarity is that Maguire
    and Wimmer are both tall and strong in the air. I am worried the rumoured
    interest in Maguire could mean Alderweireld is leaving rather than Wimmer.
