According to CalcioMercato, Tottenham Hotspur have expressed an interest in signing Borussia Monchengladbach defender, Matthias Ginter.

Tottenham did not make as many changes to their backline as some fans would have expected over the summer following their defensive woes for much of last season. 

While Toby Alderweireld and Serge Aurier were replaced by Cristian Romero and Emerson Royal respectively, the likes of Davinson Sanchez, Eric Dier and Matt Doherty remained at the club.

However, if CalcioMercato are to be believed, Spurs have now set their sights on another defensive recruit in Ginter, who is capable of playing at either side of centre-back, right-back and even defensive midfield.

The 27-year-old was thought to be a subject of a bid from Tottenham during the summer transfer window but he ended up staying put at Gladbach (Bild – as relayed by Sport Witness).

The German international is now into the final year of his contract at Borussia Park and according to CaclioMercato, he is wanted by several clubs across Europe.

The report reveals that apart from Spurs, Inter Milan, Bayern Munich and Real Madrid also have their eyes on Ginter.

If Ginter does not sign a new contract soon, one would expect Gladbach to cash in on him during January as they would not want to lose the defender for free next summer.

I certainly think the 27-year-old could be a useful addition for Spurs, particularly if he is available for a cut-price fee.
