Reported Tottenham transfer target Matthias Ginter assumes that discussions will soon take place with Borussia Monchengladbach over signing a new contract. 

The centre-back was the subject of a lot of reported interest across Europe this summer, with plenty of clubs looking to exploit the German international’s contract situation, with his deal expiring in 2022.

The 27-year-old has seemingly put these rumours to bed with his latest comments, suggesting that he is open to signing a new deal with the German club.

Tottenham were one of the clubs said to be sniffing around the defender in the transfer window. Bild reported in May that Spurs had put an offer on the table to Monchengladbach but a deal between the clubs never formulated.

Tottenham were not alone with their interest, with the same report suggesting that Liverpool, Inter Milan, and RB Leipzig were all keen but never made any official offers.

Sky Germany added to that by saying three Spanish clubs – Barcelona, Real Madrid, and Atletico Madrid – all approached Ginter’s agent about a move.

All this reported interest never translated into anything concrete and now Ginter himself has come out to say he assumes contract talks will begin soon.

He said: “I’m the wrong person to talk to. I haven’t heard anything yet. But I assume that there will be an exchange in the next few weeks.”

Many felt Spurs needed to add another centre-back after Romero so Spurs’ interest in Ginter is not a surprising one. However, you feel this saga is coming to a swift end given his comments.
