Spurs look to Kram German star into struggling side

Tottenham Hotspur are lining up a move for Bayer Leverkusen and German international midfielder Christoph Kramer, according to Metro.

Spurs technical directer Franco Baldini has been on three separate scouting missions in Germany to evaluate  the 23-year-old – who is on loan at high-flyers Borussia Monchengladbach – and after being suitably impressed he may ask manager Mauricio Pochettino to give the go-ahead for a bid for Kramer, especially in light of Tottenham’s disappointing home defeat to Newcastle in the Premier League on Sunday.

The midfielder was a part of Germany’s Word Cup-winning squad in Brazil during the summer and made the starting XI for the final against Argentina, only to be substituted early in the first half after suffering a head injury.

Nevertheless, Kramer has not let this setback get to him and has excelled for Monchengladbach this season, attracting the attention of several European clubs in the process.

Although Leverkusen sporting director Rudi Voeller is insistent that Kramer will return to his parent club at the end of the season, a serious bid from Tottenham could see the promising youngster move to White Hart Lane in the near future.
