We like the idea of this one. The Mirror reports that Stuttgart are interested in taking Younes Kaboul to Germany and that Tottenham may try to negotiate a swap as part of the deal
And the Londoners are considering using their interest in defender Kaboul to test Stuttgart’s resolve to hang on to their record-breaking teenager Timo Werner.
Spurs are monitoring him and are ready to ask if Stuttgart will include him in any deal for 29-year-old Kaboul.
Why is Werner a record breaker? Because he became Stuttgart’s youngest ever first team player when he made his debut for the club in 2013 and he was also the youngest player to ever score a brace in the Bundesliga – a feat he achieved just a couple of months after the debut.
We think that Tottenham need to think long term with regards strikers now. Harry Kane is going to be a mainstay at 21 so Tottenham needn’t start investing in older forwards. They need players to complement and compete with their number 9. So a few young additions may be the answer.
Werner has played 49 times already for Stuttgart, scoring 9 times. He has also been on fire with players of his own size, scoring 16 goals in 18 games for the Germany U17s and 5 in 6 for the U19s. He looks like he is pure quality already and has that ice cool composure of all the best German players.
As for Kaboul. Well, he looked good as a youngster but seems to have got worse for each of the last two years. It’s time for a change of scenery for the lad.
Let’s have a look at Werner in action. Tottenham fans: good investment or is he too young to make an impact?
