It’s no secret that Tottenham are interested in Marcel Sabitzer. But who isn’t?
According to the football transfer rumours in British and German media, Tottenham will look to sign RB Leipzig forward Marcel Sabitzer.
The 26-year-old has been subject to interest from various European clubs.
Leipzig spent 2 million euros to sign the Austria international from Rapid Wien in the summer of 2014.
The forward banged in two goals and provided one assists in six matches for Leipzig this season across all fronts showcasing just how influential he has been in the final third.
The 26-year-old is considered to be one of the best forwards in Austria. Marcel Sabitzer has also left his mark at the international stage after netting 8 goals in 44 senior appearances for the Austria national team.
His impressive performances this season have apparently caught the eye of some of Europe’s big clubs.
Sabitzer is widely regarded as a key transfer target for Tottenham this winter.
The report claims that Tottenham manager has extensively scouted Sabitzer and is considering a move for the forward.
José Mourinho will reportedly be handed a huge transfer kitty this winter and the Leipzig forward is thought to be among the manager’s priorities.
The Austria international will offer the Tottenham boss the freedom to be more flexible with his formations, tactics and team selections.
According to the report, “Tottenham are eyeing RB Leipzig forward Marcel Sabitzer. BILD says Tottenham are leading the race for Sabitzer ahead of the January market. The 26-year-old is reportedly attracting a lot of interest as he enters the final 18 months of his contract in Germany, and will be available for a knockdown fee. Leipzig are hesitant to extend his contract due to the expense likely required, paving the way for a move next summer at around £27m. But Spurs may push to prise Sabitzer away in January.”

If Tottenham can agree on a fee with Leipzig, the deal should be easy to complete.
Good signing for Tottenham?
If Sabitzer is available for the right price, then he could be a clever acquisition for Tottenham.
Marcel Sabitzer is very highly rated in Germany and he could be a superb long term signing for the Spurs. He has all the skillset required to be a success story at Tottenham. Therefore, it makes sense for Mourinho to step up his attempts to bring the Austria international forward to Premier League side.
It will be interesting to see if Tottenham make their move for the 26-year-old in the coming weeks.
