According to reports out of Germany, Tottenham Hotspur could be set to pip West Ham in the race to sign Bayer Leverkusen defender Jonathan Tah this summer.
It became clear in February that the 27-year-old was looking to bring his time in the Bundesliga to an end, with ambitions of playing in the Premier League putting clubs in England on high alert (90 Min).
BILD discuss the big rebuild needed at Tottenham this summer, particularly in the defensive areas, and put Tah forward as the perfect candidate to join the Lilywhites.
Apparently, there is a release clause in Tah’s current contract which would allow him to leave Leverkusen for €18 million this summer. The only catch is, the clause must be activated and the fee paid up by the start of July.
It is believed Tah is now actively “pushing for a change” in his career, and it is said the player fits the profile of what Spurs are looking for.
Spurs Web Opinion
A big, strong, reliable defender who is comfortable in possession sounds like the perfect remedy for a fragile Tottenham defence, and at that price, we should be snapping him up immediately. There will be competition for his signature, so we will have to make this happen as soon as possible.
