Tottenham Hotspur fans have had mixed views over potentially signing Marcel Sabitzer.

BILD claims that Spurs are interested in the RB Leipzig midfielder, who has enjoyed a wonderful campaign.


Sabitzer actually announced his quality against Tottenham this campaign, when he scored twice in the second-leg of their Champions League tie.

And some Tottenham fans think that Sabitzer could be a great addition to their squad.

Others, though, are more of the opinion that Jose Mourinho should be focusing their funds elsewhere rather than buying midfielders.

Tottenham already have Harry Winks, Gedson Fernandes, Moussa Sissoko, Tanguy Ndombele, Giovani Lo Celso and Oliver Skipp who can play in midfield, so they are well stocked in that area.

There may be an argument to suggest that Sabitzer would be an upgrade on most of Tottenham’s current options though.

The Austrian has netted 15 goals and claimed eight assists for Leipzig this term, and if he could recreate those sort of figures for Tottenham would be a fine addition.
