Marcel Sabitzer admitted that he is at the right age to make one last big transfer when quizzed about the speculation linking him with a summer exit.
Previous reports have indicated that Spurs are already laying the groundwork to pull of a potential deal for the 27-year-old in the summer while Alasdair Gold has also backed the North Londoners to make an approach for the Austrian.
Laola1 now report that Sabitzer’s future is still up in the air and Leipzig are reluctant to let him leave for free, thus increasing the likelihood that they would cash in on him this summer.
It is claimed that Jose Mourinho is ‘extremely enthusiastic’ about the prospect of signing the midfielder.
When asked about the speculation surrounding his future, Sabitzer is quoted in the report as saying: “There is nothing against it, but nothing for it either. I am relatively neutral.
“I know that I am at an age where it may be the last step. That’s why I let it go through my head.”
Spurs Web Opinion
A summer approach for Sabitzer seems to make sense for Spurs due to multiple reasons. He would come relatively cheaply due to his contract situation and would serve as an ideal Dele Alli replacement.
Mourinho seems to be a fan of the Austrian but even if he is sacked, Julian Nagelsmann seems to be the favourite to replace him and one would assume that the 33-year-old would not turn down the opportunity to bring the midfielder with him to Spurs.
