Football.London’s Alasdair Gold has revealed on his YouTube channel that Tottenham Hotspur have not made any contact with Marcel Sabitzer’s representatives despite recent reports to the contrary.
The Austrian international has hit new heights with his performances since Julian Nagelsmann took over at Leipzig a little over two years ago, and was one of their most influential players in their journey to the semi-final of last season’s Champions League.
Tottenham were linked with the move for the versatile wide man during the previous transfer window but he ended up staying put at the Red Bull Arena.
SportBILD (via Sport Witness) revealed last week that this could be the midfielder’s last season at Leipzig since he is unlikely to pen a new contract, with Tottenham holding a keen interest in bringing him to England.
Some Spurs fans were extremely excited by the prospect of signing Sabitzer and suggested that he could be the ideal replacement for Dele Alli, who has fallen out of favour under Jose Mourinho.
Gold has now revealed that the former the Rapid Wien player is someone that Spurs “absolutely love” but he claimed that the club have not made any contact with his representatives for a “long-time”.
He said suggestions that Spurs were leading the race for Sabitzer were wide of the mark and also expressed doubt on whether that another winger/attacking midfielder will be a priority for Tottenham at the moment, given how well-stocked they are in those areas of the pitch.
