Julian Brandt looks set to snub a move to the Premier League in order to remain in the Bundesliga.

The Bayer Leverkusen playmaker has been the subject of interest from Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool (SportBild).

The 23-year-old still has two years left to run on his existing contract but reportedly has a release clause of just £21.5 million (Mirror) which has seen fellow Bundesliga outfit Borussia Dortmund move in for the German international and is tipped to move to the Westenfalenstadion (Bild).

Brandt represents superb value for money at what could be considered a bargain for a player who has played for his country and certainly would have fitted in Tottenham’s budget.

The attacking midfielder could have been an ideal replacement if Christian Eriksen decides his future lies away from North London but now appears that they will have to look elsewhere.

It is a frustrating prospect for Spurs fans to consider losing the Dane, but there are few players in European football who possess the quality to fill his shoes – especially for a low price.

If Brandt has played his last game for Leverkusen he departs having helped the club qualify for Champions League football.

Have something to tell us about this article?

  1. I don’t think snub is the correct word, he already said: ” I don’t want to sit on the bench and be small part player” he thought his playing time at Liverpool would be limited and wanted regular football, which is fair enough! these remarks are meant to get a response and is a cheap form of journalism, If top clubs want a player who they think will embellish their squad they go out of their way to get him and I haven’t heard anything coming out of Spurs or Liverpool!
