Borussia Dortmund are now ready to challenge Spurs for the signing of Freiburg defender, Robin Koch, according to reports in Germany.
Koch has been a rock at the back for Freiburg this season and his performances have seemingly won him several admirers across Europe.
Freiburg manager, Christian Streich, has admitted that the club may have to sell the 23-year-old this summer as they have taken a financial hit amidst the COVID-19 pandemic (Sky Sports in Germany via Fussball News).
The report reveals that Koch is available for around €10 million this summer and, although several clubs in Europe have expressed their interest in him, the German international wants to remain in the Bundesliga for now.
That would seemingly give Dortmund the edge over Spurs in the race for the defender.

Dortmund rarely get a transfer wrong and if they are interested in signing Koch, you can bet that his value will likely double or triple over the next few years. At the rumoured €10 million price, the German would be an absolute bargain in comparison to the other central defenders we have been linked with.
