Report: Tottenham Hotspur want Freiburg defender Robin Koch as Toby Alderweireld’s replacement

Toby Alderweireld’s exit looks likely.

Robin Koch is the latest name on Tottenham Hotspur’s wishlist. According to Bild, Koch has been identified as a potential Toby Alderweireld replacement.

Alderweireld’s future at Spurs is uncertain. A number of clubs, including Manchester United, Juventus and Barcelona, want to sign the Belgian defender for £26m (The Mirror).

The 30-year-old has a clause in his contract allowing him to leave for that small fee. And he is yet to agree a new deal with Spurs, leading to speculation surrounding his future.

 

Tottenham have now been scouring the market for potential replacements. The North London side will need a new centre-back to compete with Juan Foyth, Davinson Sanchez and Jan Vertonghen.

Freiburg defender Koch has emerged as their latest target. The 22-year-old has been impressing in the Bundesliga and could earn a Premier League move.

Valencia are also keen on Koch, who moved to Freiburg in 2017 from Kaiserslautern. The Germany U21 centre-back has been a key part of Freiburg’s team this season, playing 22 games and helping to secure safety in the German top-flight.

Koch could cost more than Caylar Soyuncu, who moved from Freiburg to Leicester City last summer. The Turkish defender was sold for about £18m, meaning Spurs might need to break the £20m barrier to sign Koch.
