Tottenham target Kevin Wimmer: Nothing is finalised yet

The Cologne star has admitted that negotiations have taken place, but a deal to bring him to London has not yet been agreed.

Tottenham have been heavily linked with a move for Kevin Wimmer in recent days, with the British media claiming that a £4.3 million deal has been agreed.

The Cologne defender has been starring in the Bundesliga for the modest side and as such is subject to interest over a potential summer move.

However, despite admitting that negotiations with the North London club have taken place, the 22-year-old centre-half has clarified that nothing has been concluded as yet.

"I do not understand why my phone is suddenly overflowing,” he told Austrian newspaper Express.

“Of course, there were negotiations with Tottenham Hotspur, but nothing is finalised yet.”

The Austria international has been on Cologne’s books since 2012 and has been a first-team regular for the German club this season, starting 25 Bundesliga games.

With Vlad Chiriches and Younes Kaboul failing to win over Mauricio Pochettino, Spurs are expected to offload the pair this summer and add a replacement to rival Eric Dier, Jan Vertonghen and Federico Fazio for a place in the starting XI.

Once capped by Austria, Wimmer is being hailed as a promising player for the future and could well be an astute and affordable purchase for Spurs.
