Whether it’s this year or in the future, Tottenham Hotspur could be preparing for life without Harry Kane. Regardless, the Premier League club could be looking for a replacement soon, and their search has led them to Germany.
90min reports that Tottenham, along with Southampton, Newcastle United, and Wolverhampton Wanderers, are pursuing FC Schalke forward Matthew Hoppe. The report adds that the German club is open to selling the player, whose transfer value sits at €4.5-million per Transfermarkt.
The COVID-19 pandemic has affected the 2. Bundesliga side, which faces debts of £175-million, so it explains why they’re open for the sale of the 20-year-old for the right price. Nonetheless, with two years left on his contract with Schalke, so they can’t hold out for far too long.
As for Hoppe, the young forward has made 24 appearances for the Schalke first-team squad, where he’s scored six goals. This isn’t the first time that Premier League clubs come asking for Hoppe, as Manchester United, Liverpool, and Chelsea have expressed interest in the past.
