‘We will not sell’ – Bundesliga club director adamant Spurs target will not leave

Borussia Monchengladbach’s sporting director Max Eberl has claimed that rumoured Tottenham Hotspur target, Alassane Plea is not for sale under any circumstances this summer.

Plea has reportedly been on Tottenham’s radar since he was playing for Nice back in 2018 (RMC Sport).

The striker has come into his own since his move to Borussia Monchengladbach, showing both his versatility and potency in attack.

The Frenchman has enjoyed an excellent season for the Bundesliga side, managing 10 goals and 10 assists in 27 league appearances this season (transfermarkt.com).

His performances have reportedly alerted several sides from the Premier League, including the Lilywhites (Bild).

However, Eberl is adamant that the club are not to going to be selling their best players this summer as they have done in the past.

The club sporting director insisted that Borussia Monchengladbach were planning on keeping their squad together and that all offers would be rejected.

When asked about the rumoured interest in Gladbach’s stars, Eberl told WZ: “This is the first time that we will not sell any of our cornerstones and keep the squad together. For me, it is clear that we will not sell.

“(In recent seasons), we sold players every year. But that’s simply not the case now. Those who are top performers like Elvedi, Ginter or (Florian) Neuhaus, (Denis) Zakaria, (Breel) Embolo, (Marcus) Thuram or Plea are young.

“Sure, day X will come sometime, even with those players mentioned. But not now. Today, there is nothing that would make me sell a player.”

Spurs Web Opinion

In many respects, Plea would have been an ideal striker for us to go for if he was willing to be a backup to Harry Kane. He has a fairly similar profile to Callum Wilson with his pace and versatility. However, I suspect we might go for a someone who is more in the mould of a target man like Arkadiusz Milik this summer.
