Tottenham Hotspur fans have taken to social networking site Twitter to give their reaction to a report that the club wanted to sign Leroy Sane from Schalke this summer.
Sane, a Germany Under-19 international who can play as a forward as well as an attacking midfielder, signed a new contract with Schalke on Saturday which will keep him at the German side until 2019.
The 19-year-old highly-rated attacker scored three goals and created five chances in 13 Bundesliga appearances for Schalke last season.
The teenager had a pass accuracy of 76% and a shot accuracy of 40%, and won nine headers, 22 dribbles and 17 tackles.
Following the report, Tottenham fans took to Twitter to have their say and seemed to back the club’s reported move to sign the youngster.
