Spurs the ‘likelier destination’ for UCL winner linked with a January move – Player ‘fancies playing in the PL’

By Mehdi Gokal -

Tottenham have surprisingly been linked with a move for Toni Kroos this week.

The Real Madrid midfielder is a target for a number of Premier League clubs as per journalist Paul Brown.

The German’s current contract with the La Liga giants expires in the summer and no talks of a fresh contract as yet, his future remains uncertain.

As per a report last week, Kroos is waiting to see if he is offered a new contract before Christmas.

If he is not offered by then the German could make a move to the Premier League in January.

The report claimed that his representatives are looking to offer him to the top clubs in the Premier with Spurs leading the race and the ‘likelier destination’

But as per Paul Brown, no Premier League club has made a concrete move for the midfielder as yet but confirmed the reports that the player fancies playing in the Premier League.

He told GiveMeSport:

“Toni Kroos is clearly being offered around to various clubs in Europe. His representatives have let it be known that he quite fancies playing in the Premier League, and that’s attracted a lot of interest.

“Nobody has firmed that up as yet, but he is a player who lots of clubs in the Premier League have coveted and tried to sign before. He is now 33 and not playing the kind of key role that he was for Real Madrid. His contract is coming to an end, so I think this is why there are stories.

“I don’t think he has made his mind up yet about what to do in the future. It wouldn’t be a huge surprise if he still decided to sign a new deal, if he is offered one, and stay at Real Madrid. He is playing games for them.”

TBH says:
Spurs are in the market for a midfielder or two in the January transfer window as they look to bolster their squad.

There is no doubt about quality and experience he will bring to the team but whether he fits the profile of the player Ange looks for remains to be seen.

His age could also be a factor in Tottenham’s decision to make a move for him.
