Spurs Linked To Champions League Ace Marcel Sabitzer: So here’s the latest video showreel
By Joe Fish -

It’s one of the oldest tropes in football: Player X stars in Team A victory over Team B, and a short while later, Team B apparently wants to sign Player X.

In this case, Team A is RB Leipzig, Team B is Tottenham and Player X is Marcel Sabitzer, the double goalscorer from this week’s 3-0 conquering in Germany.

According to Ferdinando Gagliotti of Italian outlet Calciomercato, Spurs are “tempted” by the 25-year-old who is also reportedly a target for Arsenal after a 15-goal and eight-assist season for Leipzig.

Those are impressive numbers and there is little doubt from, albeit the small sample size of one two-legged tie, that Sabitzer would be able to replicate those numbers in the Premier League. Sharp, technical and a desire to get into the box, the Austrian is a good, well-rounded winger.

Opinion

But this rumour is so predictable that I cannot see any truth in it. The last thing we need right now is another wide-man, having recently added Steven Bergwijn to a set of options that is healthy in depth if not in top-class ability – Son Heung min, Lucas Moura and Erik Lamela for starters.

Why would any decent player want to come to a club likely to be languishing in mid table when they could be playing in the CL?This has got ENIC spin written all over it to pretend they have an interest in turning round the club’s fortunes.It’s not as if Levy pays world record salaries out of the club’s world record profits.
