Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder Florian Neuhaus, who has been linked with a summer move to Tottenham Hotspur has refused to get carried away by the speculation regarding his future by insisting that he is focused on having a strong finish to the season.
Neuhaus has evolved into one of the best-attacking midfield talents in the Bundesliga over the last two years.
His exploits for Marco Rose’s side has seen the 23-year-old break into the German national side ahead of the Euros in the summer.
Sport 1 reported in January that Tottenham were competing with the likes of Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich for the midfielder’s signature.
A season that promised a lot for Gladbach seems to be now petering out, with the club on the verge of being knocked out of the Champions League and falling to eighth place in the Bundesliga table.
However, Neuhaus, who reportedly has a £34.5m release clause in his contract, insisted that he is fully focused on his football at Borussia Park.
When asked about the speculation surrounding his future, the midfielder told Kicker: “I have a contract until 2024 and I have very big goals for this season. That’s what I’m concentrating on now.
“It’s (the speculation) really not a big issue for me now.
“I play for Borussia, I have a contract and we as a club are still pursuing very big goals this season.
“I can’t say what will happen in the summer at the moment. I’m also very relaxed about the future.”
Spurs Web Opinion
The heavy links to Nahuas and Sabizer suggests that Tottenham are after a goal-scoring midfielder in the summer transfer window. However, whether we move for such a player could depend on Dele Alli’s future. If the Tottenham star builds on his performance against Wolfsberger and has a strong finish to the season, we might not need a marauding midfielder.
