Tottenham in talks to sign Marcel Sabitzer

Tottenham Hotspur are interested in signing RB Leipzig midfielder Marcel Sabitzer.

According to journalist Ekrem Konur, the Premier League club have opened talks to sign the Austrian star on a player-plus-cash deal.

Sabitzer has been in fine form for Leipzig over the past year and could prove to be an astute addition to Jose Mourinho’s midfield.

The 26-year-old can play in a number of positions and his versatility would add to Spurs’ first-team options.

Sabitzer is a technically gifted midfielder who would add goals and creativity to Tottenham’s engine room.

The 26-year-old has three goals and one assist to his name in seven Bundesliga starts this season.

Tottenham have quality midfielders like Tanguy Ndombele and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg at their disposal but they lack goals from central midfield.

Sabitzer would undoubtedly add a new dimension to their play if he joins the club.

It is no surprise that Spurs are keen on securing his services, although completing a deal during the January transfer window may be difficult.

However, signing a player of Sabitzer’s quality would make a considerable difference for them in their hunt for silverware this season.
