Tottenham star reckons international team mates will join him

Lewis Holtby (TOTTENHAM)

Tottenham star Lewis Holtby reckons his fellow countrymen Julian Draxler and Marco Reus could soon join the growing number of German players in the Premier League, reports the Evening Standard.

German players are among the most coveted in the world at present, and their presence has been strongly felt in the Premier League, with Holtby at Tottenham, Andre Schurrle at Chelsea and Per Mertesacker, Lukas Podolski, Mesut Ozil and Serge Gnabry at Arsenal.

The Premier League had the upper hand over the Bundesliga this week, with Arsenal beating Borussia Dortmund 1-0 away from home, and Chelsea comfortably beating Schalke 3-0 at Stamford Bridge.

But Holtby is confident those results will not make his compatriots any less appealing to the top Premier League sides.

“Draxler is on the list of every big team,” Holtby said.

“He is a fantastic young player and I think a lot of money will probably be spent on him. I don’t know whether he wants to come but there are a lot of players there.

“People say Marco Reus is in talks with everyone here so Germany have a number of big talents and the Premier League is very keen on getting them in. You also look at Adam Szalai, the Hungarian striker at Schalke.

“It’s good that so many Germans are coming to the Premier League, which I believe is the best and most attractive competition in the world. German players are very dedicated and professional. It’s the dedication that makes them attractive to clubs.

“It’s also great to have other German players in London, good to speak a bit of German, and more and more of them will come. Every German player is welcome in England.”
