Tottenham Hotspur could continue their summer spending spree into the next couple of transfer windows. Christian Falk of German publication BILD reports that the club are interested in signing RB Leipzig midfielder Marcel Sabitzer as well as potentially being keen on a deal for striker Wout Weghorst.

Tottenham Hotspur Could Land Both Marcel Sabitzer and Wout Weghorst

Sabitzer Interest From Both Sides

Spurs have recruited heavily in the midfield area in recent transfer windows. Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg joined from Southampton in the summer and has impressed since his arrival in North London, while Tanguy Ndombele’s summer move in 2019 finally looks as though it is paying off following the Frenchman’s revitalised performances this season.

Falk, though, reports that Austria international Sabitzer could come in to provide further competition in that area. The 26-year-old Leipzig captain would provide further leadership in the centre of the park and chips in with a fair number of goal contributions too. He has, so far, scored four and assisted two this season.


There is no indication of whether Spurs will make their move in January or wait for the summer window to come around. In his latest column for The Athletic, though, David Ornstein suggested that Spurs are unlikely to spend this winter. However, it would depend on whether any sales are made.

Wolfsburg Require Tottenham Bid

Falk also addressed the rumours around Wolfsburg striker Wout Weghorst, stating that the Dutchman has a promise from the club that he can leave for £35 million if Tottenham put a bid in.


Spurs did finally sign a back-up striker to Harry Kane in the summer when they brought in Carlos Vinicius on loan from Benfica. They also have the option to make the deal permanent for around £36 million if the loan proves to be a success.

The two prices being roughly the same makes sense – it would then come down to which of the players the Spurs hierarchy think can be the best back-up to Kane.

Vinicius has barely featured in the Premier League for Spurs, playing just 12 minutes of the 1-0 win at West Bromwich Albion. He has, though, found some success in the Europa League. The 25-year-old played in five out of the six group games, scoring three goals and assisting a further three.

Meanwhile, Weghorst has been a prominent figure in Wolfsburg’s season once again, playing the full 90 minutes in all but one of his last 13 appearances for the Bundesliga club.

So far this season, he has found the net on 13 occasions in all competitions and has provided one assist too, helping his side to sit fourth in the table.
