Tottenham Hotspur may be on the lookout for a new attacking midfielder past this summer if Christian Eriksen leaves North London. Even if the Great Dane stays for another season, there is a real chance that he will leave on a free in the summer of 2020.
This comes after Eriksen told the media that he was ready to move on and find a new challenge and a step up from the Lilywhites in his career (Ekstra Bladet).
One man who has been linked as a possible replacement is 20-year-old Bayer Leverkusen playmaker, Kai Havertz, who has been setting the Bundesliga alight (Football London).
Kevin Volland, a teammate of Havertz, has now come out and claimed that a move away from Leverkusen would be inevitable if he keeps playing the way he is playing.
Volland said (Inside Futbol): “For us as a team Kai is outstanding. I’ve followed him since he came up [from the youth ranks].
“Kai continues to develop at a top-level. The increase in performance last season was emblematic of his footballing quality and personality.
“We are extremely happy that we have a player who is so versatile.
“I went on holiday with a good feeling and I expected him to stay for at least another year. I think the step is just right for his development.
“Of course, if he continues like that, there will eventually be a transfer.
“He has to decide it for himself.
“I hope he plays another season like the last.”
