According to German newspaper Bild, Tottenham Hotspur have made contact with Bayern Munich about a possible deal for playmaker Mario Gotze.

Spurs have made one summer addition to their side so far, as midfielder Victor Wanyama made the move from Southampton in order to reunite with his former manager Mauricio Pochettino.

Pochettino does need to make more additions ahead of the club's return to the Champions League, with fans expecting at least one new striker to come in, as well as another winger or playmaker to compete with the likes of Christian Eriksen and Dele Alli.

Now, Bild make a stunning claim - that Tottenham have made contact with Bayern Munich over a possible deal to sign German international playmaker Mario Gotze.

Gotze, 24, was one of the hottest prospects in the world during his time with Borussia Dortmund, and made the controversial move to join their biggest rivals Bayern Munich in the summer of 2013.

30 goals in his first two seasons - and a goal for Germany in the 2014 World Cup final - suggested that he would reach the potential he flashed at Dortmund, but last season was a nightmare for the attacking midfielder.

Gotze started just 11 Bundesliga games under Pep Guardiola, hitting only three league goals as he slipped down the pecking order - and having struggled for Germany at this summer's European Championships, a move may be on the cards.

It's believed that, whilst former club Dortmund want to sign Gotze as a replacement for new Manchester United signing Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Tottenham have shot to the front of the queue for his signature.

Bild's report claims that Spurs made contact over a deal to sign Gotze this week, with Pochettino weighing up the possibility of a blockbuster move in his search for attacking reinforcements this summer.
