The 19-year-old midfielder has emerged as one of the Bundesliga’s top young talents since breaking into the Gelsenkirchen outfit’s first-team ranks.
He’s been in terrific form so far this term, notching three goals and registering one assist despite only being in the Schalke starting XI for two of his seven appearances.
And reports claim that his form has alerted Spurs, who may consider a move for the talented attacking midfielder in 2016.
Sane is already a Germany U-21 international despite his young age, after moving up quickly from the world champions’ U-19 set-up.
Tottenham have looked to the Bundesliga of late for transfer additions, with summer signings Heung-Min Son and Kevin Wimmer having joined the club from Bayer Leverkusen and Koln respectively.
Sane is the latest of a talented crop of players to break through at Schalke, with Max Meyer and Julian Draxler (who now plays for Wolfsburg) having gained attention in recent times.
