Report: Spurs targeting a £15m cut-price move for relegated Leeds player

Tottenham Hotspur may look to make a move for Leeds United’s Robin Koch, and hope to strike a cut-price deal for the defender after his club was relegated from the Premier League.

Leeds United were beaten by Tottenham on the final day of the season, a defeat which sealed their fate and condemned the Yorkshire club to spend next season in the Championship.

It has not been a good year for Leeds, but Robin Koch has long been a shining star in a side which has consistently struggled in the Premier League.

The 26-year-old signed for Leeds from Freiburg in the summer of 2020 and has amassed 77 appearances since arriving in England (Transfermarkt).

As one of the more highly-rated players in the Leeds squad, it’s understandable that the German may move on this summer rather than dropping down to the Championship.

According to Sport1, Tottenham and Newcastle have been impressed by Koch and both clubs were thought to be considering a move in the summer.

Now that Leeds’ relegation has been confirmed, it appears Spurs are keen to get the ball rolling and sources at Football Insider suggest the Lilywhites hope to reduce the player’s price tag.

Spurs are looking to sign at least one new centre-back this summer, and it is believed Koch has been “shortlisted” by the North London side ahead of the summer.

Apparently, Spurs now reckon they can prise Koch away from Leeds for as little as £15 million. The player has just 12 months left on his current contract, which could force Leeds’ hand.

Spurs Web Opinion

Koch is not a bad player, but I have never been overly impressed by him.

I think there are far better centre halves out there that we could be targeting, and I’d be a little bit disappointed if the supposed solution to our defensive issues was a player involved in the worst defence in the league.
