Report: Tottenham Hotspur continuing to monitor reported target Leroy Sane of Schalke

The German under-21 international is currently in great form.

In July it was reported that Tottenham hotspur were interested in signing talented attacking midfielder Leroy Sane.

The 19-year-old Germany under-21 international was linked with an £8.5 million move to Spurs this summer, as reported by the London Evening Standard.

Schalke decided he would be going nowhere and that was that – but it seems that Spurs are still keeping tabs on the player.

It is reported by Der Westen in Germany that Tottenham are continuing to monitor the player this summer – as they look to the future with their recruitment policy.

The Germany under-21 international certainly fits the mould regarding the type of player Spurs are now trying to bring in through the door.

Fast, energetic and not workshy, the son of former Senegal international Souleyman Sane looks a real talent.

He has started the new season in great form. Sane has scored twice in his last two games for the Bundesliga outfit and would have no doubt been impressing Tottenham if they are indeed keeping tabs on his progress.

Spurs have recently experienced success in the German market, after bringing in talented players Kevin Wimmer and Heung-min Son from the Bundesliga.
