Will Tottenham make U-turn on Kevin Wimmer to clinch Daniel Didavi deal?

Tottenham Hotspur and Stuttgart have both been linked to each other's players, could a compromise be reached?

Tottenham and Stuttgart are both reported to want to do deals with one another, so could a compromise still be reached this month?

Spurs are tracking forward Daniel Didavi, report German outlet WeltFootball, whose contract expires at the end of the season, and could look to strike a deal with the Bundesliga side keen to cash in while they can.

Stuttgart meanwhile want to sign Kevin Wimmer on a loan deal until the end of the season, although The Mail claim Spurs do not want to let the Austrian international go.

It may make sense for Spurs to make a U-turn and compromise so a swap deal can be reached which allows them to secure Didavi and strengthen their attack.

What they need to consider is whether bringing him in early is worth the price of being without their third choice centre-back for the rest of the season, who while he has barely played all year, could be needed in the second half of the campaign.

Loaning Wimmer would mean Spurs would need to keep Federico Fazio, although they could look to move Eric Dier back in central defence in an emergency rather than play the Argentine, but given the Englishman's effectiveness in midfield, neither are solutions which the club would want to rely on for weeks at a time if injuries struck.

Didavi, 25, is a former German under-21 international who has scored seven goals in 16 league games for Stuttgart this season.

He is more of an attacking midfielder in the Christian Eriksen mould than a striker, but is also capable of playing out wide, and would increase the competition for places at the club at a key point in the season.

Wimmer would be a sacrificial lamb to bring in Didavi now if Stuttgart do not want to accept a cash offer, but Tottenham would have to prioritise who is more important.
