‘I’m not particularly confident’ – Manager makes admission about rumoured Spurs target

Freiburg coach Christian Streich has admitted that he is not confident of keeping rumoured Tottenham Hotspur target Robin Koch at the club beyond the summer.

Koch has been touted as a target for Jose Mourinho’s side since the January transfer window (Record via Sport Witness), with reports backing the club to try again to sign the German international at the end of the current campaign (O Jogo).

The 23-year-old has continued his fine form since the restart of the Bundesliga with Freiburg looking to chase down the likes of Bayern Leverkusen and Hoffenheim in order to qualify for next season’s Europa League.

Koch’s performances have reportedly also attracted the attention of Borussia Dortmund, who have been linked with a €10million move for the defender (Bild via BuliNews).

Streich has previously admitted that Freiburg may have to sell some of their best players this summer due to the financial problems the club are facing (Sky Sports in Germany via Fussball News).

The Bundesliga club official has now admitted that the centre-half is one of the players who could be on their way out of the Schwarzwald Stadion.

When asked by Kicker if he is confident that Koch will stay, Streich said: “I’m not particularly confident about that. But I’m not afraid of it either.

“We are a club that, like many others, relies on transfer proceeds.

“We train players, they get better, then go. It’s part of our job.”

Spurs Web Opinion

One of the reasons, I can potentially see us going for Koch is due to his versatility. He can potentially help cover both at centre-half as well as defensive midfield, which could make him a valuable addition to the squad. However, I suspect the 23-year-old is not at the top of our wishlist this summer.
