These Tottenham Hotspur fans are keen to sign Marcel Sabitzer after a report from SportBILD stated Spurs’ interest in the 26-year-old.

Sabitzer is currently playing for RB Leipzig in the German Bundesliga, but a recent report from SportBILD has linked Spurs with a move for the midfielder.

The report stated that Leipzig has “already repositioned” itself for life after Sabitzer, which is positive news for Jose Mourinho if true.

The 26-year-old currently has a Transfermarkt value of £37.8 million.

A sizeable fee if accurate and one that would need a lot of consideration from Mourinho – as wasting close to £40 million wouldn’t do him any favours.

The Austrian international has played 46 times for his senior national side, which goes to show the quality of the 26-year-old.

Sabitzer – solid in the Bundesliga

So far this season, the Austrian has played 17 Bundesliga matches and has scored four goals along with getting two assists.

Considering Sabitzer is predominantly a central-midfielder, these are very impressive stats and it’s easy to see why Spurs would be interested.

The UEFA Champions League hasn’t been the best hunting ground for the 26-year-old.

Failing to score in all his Champions League outings, getting just one assist against Manchester United.

One minor setback for Mourinho could be the fact that for large parts of the season, Sabitzer has been the captain of Leipzig.

This could make the German giants want to hold onto their midfielder a little more or at least charge a bigger fee.

Nevertheless, based on his current form and stats. This looks like it would be a good move for Spurs.
