Kevin Wimmer’s future at Tottenham looks uncertain with just a month until the transfer window opens.
The 24-year-old was a huge boost to the Lilywhites last season when Jan Vertonghen was sidelined through injury, and it seemed he was going to make a similar impact replacing Toby Alderweireld this time around.
It’s safe to say it has not worked out that way, his most notable moment scoring an own goal in the 1-1 draw with Arsenal at the Emirates last month.
In the Champions League, he has disappointed, and all the indications are that Mauricio Pochettino could move him on sooner rather than later.
Since joining in 2015, the Austrian has only played 12 league games, and is understood to be frustrated with his lack of opportunities.
Yet, he may already have potential suitors, with Southampton viewing him as a solid replacement for their outgoing stars – that’s according to the Sun.
The Saints are no strangers to having to rebuild every summer, and they are bracing themselves to lose defensive stars Virgil van Dijk and Jose Fonte either in January or at the end of the season – depending on when the top clubs come calling.
Wimmer is set to cost around £6million, only marginally more than the £4.3million Spurs paid Cologne a year ago.
