Report: Tottenham pursuing Stuttgart's Daniel Didavi, Spurs may benefit from contract situation

Stuttgart star Daniel Didavi is reportedly a target for Tottenham.

According to the print edition German magazine Kicker, as noted by Eurosport, Tottenham Hotspur are interested in signing Stuttgart's Daniel Didavi.

Didavi, 25, first joined Stuttgart all the way back at the age of seven, and has gradually made his way up through the ranks with the Bundesliga side.

A former German Under-21 international, Didavi has yet to earn a cap for the senior side, but that honour may not be too far away thanks to his performances this season.

With seven goals and three assists from 16 Bundesliga appearances, playmaker Didavi has been one of the stars of the season so far - but speculation surrounds his future.

Didavi's contract expires in the summer, meaning Stuttgart are vulnerable to losing him in January, either through a cut-price deal or from him signing a pre-contract agreement with a club outside of Germany.

Now, German magazine Kicker, as noted by Eurosport, have reported that 25-year-old Didavi has become a target for Tottenham Hotspur.

The left-footed attacking midfielder, who can also play out wide, could be a bargain signing for Spurs. With goals and assists this season, as well as skill in possession and a decent turn of pace, Didavi is certainly worth looking at, especially given that Tottenham could land him for a knockdown fee or even on a free transfer.

Spurs have shopped for new signings in Germany recently, landing players such as Kevin Wimmer and Son Heung-min from Koln and Bayer Leverkusen respectively - and in Didavi, they may have found another potential contributor for Mauricio Pochettino's side from the Bundesliga.
