According to TZ, Bayern Munich centre-back Mats Hummels is a transfer target for both Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea ahead of the January window.
Hummels has started and finished Bayern’s last two Bundesliga matches, but has not always been in the first XI this season.
It would probably be fair to say that the 30-year-old, who was once regarded as one of the best centre-backs in the world, is currently not in his best form.
Hummels is still a four-time Bundesliga winner, however, and also played a key role in Germany landing the 2014 World Cup.
That said, even with the defender boasting a long list of achievements, the Tottenham fans are not interested in signing him.
Spurs will more than likely need a new centre-back next summer as Toby Alderweireld prepares to depart, but Hummels is not wanted as the Belgian’s replacement.
A selection of the Twitter reaction from the Tottenham fans can be seen below:
Lack of pace will embarass him n cost whoever wants to sign him – Spurs is beta off without him n shld look elsewhr

Unless Toby is leaving in Jan this looks like nonsense. Even if he is it doesn’t fit the pattern at Spurs. Looks like agent generated stuff.
