Tottenham Hotspur have been offered hope of doing a deal for German World Cup winner Christoph Kramer at the end of the season.
The £12 million rated holding midfielder has confirmed that as things stand, he’ll return to parent club Bayer Leverkusen from loan side Borussia Monchengladbach at the end of the campaign, refusing to comment on the possibility of an exit.
“As things stand I’ll play next season in Leverkusen – I know that I have a contract in Leverkusen,” he’s quoted by German tabloid Bild.
It’s a very straight down the middle and straight forward response from the young man to a question over whether he’ll be the next talented German to leave the nest for a new European league.
Spurs aren’t short on players who can patrol the space in front of their back four, but he would arguably inject a little extra quality into Tottenham’s midfield ranks having won the World Cup.
The big problem for Spurs is reported interest from Real Madrid, where Toni Kroos is a key player, and someone who could be a factor when Kramer looks at his future away from Leverkusen.
For now, nothing seems imminent and it doesn’t appear he’s looking for a move in the middle of the season.
That allows Tottenham to work hard on getting themselves into a good position to make a move at the end of the campaign, as they look to add a top quality young signing to their squad.
