Report: Tottenham 'agree terms' with Kevin Wimmer, player would join this summer

Tottenham have reportedly agreed to sign Koln defender Kevin Wimmer this summer.

According to Koln-based newspaper Express, Tottenham Hotspur have agreed a deal to sign Koln defender Kevin Wimmer this summer.

Spurs have enjoyed a strong season under Mauricio Pochettino, with the Argentine putting his faith in a number of young players such as Eric Dier, Nabil Bentaleb Ryan Mason and Harry Kane.

Now, it seems that Pochettino is keen to add another relative youngster to his squad after German website Express suggested that Spurs have agreed a deal to sign Koln centre back Kevin Wimmer.

Wimmer, 22, has featured in 26 games in all competitions for Koln this season, but was sent off in his last game for them against Eintracht Frankfurt.

Regardless, the Austrian Under-21 international has impressed this season, and Express believe that Wimmer has already agreed to join Tottenham at the end of the season, with Koln hoping for a 'double digit' fee from Spurs to complete the deal.

The left footed centre back can also play at left back, and could be seen as an understudy to Jan Vertonghen in the Tottenham backline, in case the Belgian is injured or even sold in the near future.

Known as a promising ball-playing defender with impressive passing ability, Wimmer has his best football ahead of him and could be the latest youngster to flourish under Pochettino - if the report is indeed true that Wimmer will be arriving in North London this summer.
