‘I can leave’ – Reported Spurs target confirms likely summer exit – Wants to play in PL

Borna Sosa has confirmed he can leave Stuttgart this summer amidst interest from Tottenham, providing the club receives a good enough offer to sanction a transfer. 

Sosa, 24, has been one of the better performers for the struggling Bundesliga side this term, who sit second from bottom in the table. 

He has recorded five assists in 20 appearances (Transfermarkt) as well as claiming a spot at left-back for the Croatian national team this season. 

His displays have put him on the radar for a potential move this summer, with Bild journalist Christian Falk claiming Tottenham are tracking his progress alongside rivals Arsenal. 

And Sosa, who still has a contract running until 2025 (TransferMarkt), has noted that he has an agreement to leave Stuttgart at the end of the season if the club is offered a ‘satisfactory’ sum for his services. 

He told Croatian publication Sportske Novosti: “I can confirm that I have a lot of interest. That is a fact. 

“A lot of people are calling me. The summer transfer window is approaching. We know that negotiations start early, usually in April. And that’s in less than a month.

“I can say that the time has come for me to take a new step in my career.”

On potentially playing in the Premier League, Sosa added: “I would say it is by far the strongest league. And it is clear that the goal of every footballer is to play in the strongest leagues in the world.

“Definitely, I have a great desire to play in the Premiership. I can also tell you that I was very, very close to leaving last winter.

“However, the club decided not to let me go. But I got a promise. And it reads: ‘If I get a satisfactory offer in the summer, I can leave’.

“We agreed to find the best solution together. But I say, I’m still in Stuttgart, we’ll see what opens in the summer.”

Spurs Web Opinion

Sosa has been one of Stuttgart’s better performers in what has been a dismal season for them so far, but it is hard to see where he would fit in at Spurs. 

The left side is pretty full at the moment so there would have to be movement and outgoings to free up some space for him.
