Tottenham Hotspur line up clever move for potential superstar

By Mark Peters IN Bundesliga,General,Premier League,Transfers - 08:20 Aug 7th 2017

In what has been a crazy summer of transfer madness both at home and abroad, Tottenham have so far kept their powder dry as they look to build upon a couple of impressive Premier League campaigns.

Daniel Levy is all about finding quality young players at a reasonable price and there don’t seem to be too many of them readily available at the moment.

That could be about to change if reports in the Daily Mirror are to be believed, however, with long-term target Max Meyer now entering the final year of his contract at Schalke.

MAX MEYER

Part of the Germany side that won the European Under-21 Championship this summer, the talented playmaker did enough to secure a place in UEFA’s prestigious ‘Team of the Tournament’.

Already a full international for his country, the 21-year-old is vastly experienced for a player of his age, having clocked up more than 100 appearances in his Bundesliga career to date:

Last season was a disappointing one for both player and club, with Meyer managing just a single top-flight goal and only one assist for the mid-table finishers.

Far more of the youngster’s ability was showcased in the previous three campaigns, however, as a total of 26 Bundesliga goals were either scored or assisted by the potential superstar:

Similar in style to Christian Eriksen, albeit more comfortable running with the ball, the 21-year-old is at home operating anywhere in support of a central striker, though his struggles last season suggest that the German may well begin life on the bench.

    Not this again! Potential? We already have that. He had one goal and one assist in 27 league games last season. Not what I would call an attacking midfielder. We have Lamela, Sissoko, N’Koudou and Janssen barely used. If they are not going to be played, get rid. We have bags of potential in our own youngsters. If we are to buy let’s please buy top quality, not yet more potential.

      That is a very strong point you make there, I wonder when Tottenham will face this reality and be ready to be called ”Champions!”

    this is not a clever move. this player isn’t good enough to start for us. worse than what we already have. do you even watch him play or just assume shit?
