Tottenham Hotspur reportedly wants to strengthen their midfield after adding Rodrigo Bentancur this past January transfer window. However, the north London club intends to continue molding this group, which is why the latest name connected to them is Bayern Munich’s Marcel Sabitzer.
German publication Kicker reports that Bayern Munich wants to offload the 28-year-old, who arrived last summer for €16-million, but has failed to impress since moving to the Bavarian club. This past season, Sabitzer made 32 appearances where he scored one goal and provided one assist.
Although the Bundesliga side wants to move on from the Austria international, Sabitzer has other ideas since he prefers to stay and prove himself to his old RB Leipzig manager Julian Nagelsmann.
Tottenham and Arsenal are among the clubs linked to the midfielder, but it will be interesting to see whether the two north London rivals decide to pursue a player who doesn’t want to leave Bayern Munich.
Regarding the possible cost, Football Observatory puts Sabitzer’s transfer value between €15-million and €20-million.
