German newspaper Bild has provided a breakdown of Bundesliga clubs leading into this summer’s transfer market and named Tottenham Hotspur as a club interested in two exciting attacking players.
The report suggests that Schalke’s Max Meyer and Bayer Leverkusen’s Karim Bellarabi are set to be in demand this summer, with Spurs one of the suitors listed.
Meyer has been a name linked with Tottenham over the years and the burgeoning talent’s future in Gelsenkirchen is seemingly up in the air as the playmaker’s contract runs down to conclusion in 2018.
The 21-year-old Germany international would certainly add creativity and energy to a Spurs attack that was arguably the Premier League’s most-dangerous in 2016-17, but it remains to be seen if he could command a starting berth in North London.
While Christian Eriksen and Dele Alli ever-presents in Mauricio Pochettino’s side, Meyer would represent an impressive alternative from the bench.
Bellarabi’s skillset as a tricky winger may well be more suited to what Tottenham are after, with Moussa Sissoko and Georges-Kevin N’Koudou failing to provide the attacking thrust and threat they were signed to deliver.
The Leverkusen man is versatile enough to play on either flank and would certainly offer an attractive and dangerous Plan B if the guile of Eriksen or directness of Alli was not working.
With Tottenham keen to make a real impression in the Champions League and win the Premier League title next season, links to the likes of Bellarabi and Meyer are positive – Pochettino should look to sign players that can make a real difference for Spurs immediately.
