Report: Tottenham interested in Kevin Vogt

Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly interested in signing Kevin Vogt from FC Koln this summer.

Tottenham Hotspur are interested in signing Kevin Vogt from FC Koln this summer, according to Geissblog.Koeln.

The German news outlet has not stated any further detail, but it has quoted the defensive midfielder’s consultant Tobias Sander as responding to the speculation.

"We do not participate in such speculation,” said Sander. “Kevin's focus is currently only on the situation at Koln. Nothing else matters at the moment.”

Tottenham have already signed a player from German club Koln this summer: centre-back Kevin Wimmer.

Strange move?

Vogt is a defensive midfielder and is 23 years of age, and he certainly has potential.

Last season, the former Augsburg man scored one goal and created 29 chances in 32 Bundesliga appearances.

Vogt had a pass accuracy of 78% and a shot accuracy of 18%, and won 92 headers, 24 dribbles and 41 tackles.

However, it is strange that Spurs are reportedly interested in the former Germany Under-21 international.

That is because last month the North London outfit sold Benjamin Stambouli to Paris Saint-Germain.

Stambouli is also a defensive midfielder, but he was not given enough chances at Spurs last season.

It does not make sense that Tottenham will sell a 24-year-old to sign a 23-year-old of similar qualities.
