Spurs turn to Gotze


Spurs turn to Gotze

The search for an attacking midfielder goes on. We need the right man at the right price and more importantly, the important part most fans conveniently forget, a player who wants to come to Tottenham.

Time and time again we get the 'if we had done this' or 'if we had done that' rubbish when most of the time a player has several options and it will be the player who decides what is best for his career. he will weigh up offers, he will make clubs wait while he sees what else might come along or, as has been the case this summer, he'll wait for a club takeover.

Fans of course want everything now, waiting is not an option, for them it is simply a case of slapping money on a table and everyone will just bow down to our wishes, whether they want to come and pay for Spurs or not. Real life is somewhat different.

A host of clubs are chasing 24-year-old (25 next June) Mario Gotze, with at least two deals having been reported as imminent, still he hasn't moved though. German paper Bild report that we have returned to Gotze in the last few days as we look to bring in more competition for the central attacking midfield role currently occupied by Dele Alli.

Franco Vazquez (Palermo) has long had a deal agreed with AC Milan and Roberto Pereyra (Juventus) is known to want to remain in Italy and looks like he is heading for Napoli. Georginio Wijnaldum doesn't look value at his asking price and Mario Gotze has been playing at a higher level anyway.

Liverpool strongly courted him but don't have Champions League football to offer so he turned them down suggesting he may stay at Bayern Munich. They have since signed Sadio mane from Southampton so may not be in the market for him now.

Bild suggest he told his teammates at the European Championships that he wants to leave Bayern with them signing Renato Sanches for a big fee. Borussia Dortmund and Tottenham Hotspur are said to be vying for his signature, both clubs can offer him the top tier European football he would be looking for. Being a German in Germany you would have to make Dortmund favourites, they are virtually guaranteed Champions League football each season given the lack of a competitive league in Germany.

Both manager Carlo Ancelotti and club CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge are reported to have encouraged the German international to leave if he wants more first-team football.
