TBR View: Tottenham should reignite reported interest in Mario Gotze

Tottenham may not be spending astronomical amounts in the summer transfer window, but they are quietly getting some really astute business done and are going under the radar.

Spurs added the experience of goalkeeper Joe Hart to their squad on a free transfer, plus they have arguably improved their starting XI with deals for Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Matt Doherty.

Hojbjerg, 25, is a central midfielder that has arrived from Southampton for £15million (Sky Sports), while 28-year-old right-back Doherty has signed for £15million (Evening Standard) too.

Portuguese manager Jose Mourinho is making some smart additions to his squad and he should now look towards a deal for Mario Gotze.

Gotze is currently a free agent available to sign after leaving Borussia Dortmund in the summer, with the Express claiming that West Ham, Monaco and Roma are all interested in him.

The 28-year-old is a left-footed attacker that has shown his class during his club career with Dortmund and Bayern Munich, plus he’s remembered for his famous goal that saw Germany win the World Cup final against Argentina in 2014.


His rotten luck with injuries has seen him disappear from the limelight in recent years, but he’s played 55 games combined across the past two seasons and should still have plenty more to give.

Spurs should look at a move for the free agent this summer, as he’s a versatile player that can slot into a centre-forward role or in a creative number 10 position.

The Express reported back in January that the north London outfit wanted to sign Gotze, so there is clearly some form of interest from them in the player and he could be another shrewd piece of business if they try sign him.

He could help provide competition for talisman Harry Kane in the forward areas, plus his versatility would surely make him a decent squad option.
