Tottenham Hotspur are eyeing a move for Hoffenheim midfielder Florian Grillitsch, report SkySports.

Grillitsch is available for £18 million because of a clause in his contract, although Spurs may try to sign him for a knockdown price.

 

Grillitsch is not exactly a household name, and Spurs fans have been left largely underwhelmed by the reports.

Tottenham have been reluctant to do business at all lately, going through the summer without signing any players.

The Grillitsch rumours are being treated with some scepticism despite the claim Spurs are 'keen' to strike a deal.

This season Grillitsch has made 12 Bundesliga starts out of a possible 17.

He has no goals or assists, with Grillitsch's strongest traits being his defensive work in midfield.

This is an area where Tottenham are light, with Victor Wanyama's ongoing injury problems and Mousa Dembele's impending exit.

Here is a look at the reaction on Twitter..
