Tottenham are looking to secure a deal for 1860 Munich’s Julian Weigl, that is according to reports in the Metro.
Weigl has been a mainstay in the 2. Bundesliga outfit’s side this campaign, having made 18 starts in the second flight of German football including three more appearances from the substitutes bench.
The midfielder has actually been named captain of the German side making him the youngest captain in the club’s highest, at the age of 18.
Mauricio Pochettino will no doubt be hoping that given 1860 Munich’s plight – they sit one place above the relegation play-off places in the second tier of German football – will allow for an appealing move for Wiegl and a cut-price one.
The former Saints manager is expected to be active during this summer transfer window as Spurs look to break back into the Champions League qualification places and freshen up the squad following the less than impressive return on the spend from Gareth Bale’s record transfer fee move to Real Madrid.
