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).

Havertz recorded 20 goals in just 42 games last season, almost racking up a strike every two matches for his club (Wikipedia). Bulinews claim that Havertz would be available this summer for £53m.

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.”
