Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with the full-back this summer.

The agent of Hoffenheim defender Jeremy Toljan has been speaking to Sky Sports News about the prospect of his client moving to Tottenham Hotspur this summer.

The North London club have been linked with a cut-price move for the 22-year-old, who can operate as a right-back or a left-back and could be seen as a bargain replacement for the recently departed Kyle Walker.

However, despite having just a year left on his contract, Toljan has not been the subject of an official bid from Tottenham thus far.

Speaking to Sky Sports News, Ersin Akan said, "It is always a pleasure to read big clubs like Tottenham are interested in Jeremy.

"Spurs are a fantastic club with an excellent progression in the last years, but we didn't speak to the responsible persons and, for the moment, everything is a rumour."

Tottenham are yet to sign anyone this summer and the club's fans are growing restless as the new campaign draws closer.

Manager Mauricio Pochettino has plenty of exciting options already at his disposal and it could be argued that Spurs have the strongest starting XI in the league, with the likes of Dele Alli, Danny Rose, Harry Kane and Toby Alderweireld able to walk into any team in the country.

That said reinforcements are needed as Tottenham hope to build on last season's second-place finish in the league, while also looking to impress in Europe, and for relative pennies in this inflated transfer market signing Toljan would be a good start.
