Tottenham Hotspur Join Race For Soon To Be German Free-Agent: Get It Done Poch!

Tottenham Hotspur have joined the race for Arsenal target and Schalke midfielder Leon Goretzka as the North London rivals are all set to battle it out for the services of Schalke’s midfield sensation this January.

Goretzka has been one of the most impressive midfielders in the Bundesliga this season, who’s contract with Schalke expires at the end of this season, meaning he could be up for grabs this January on a pre-contract agreement or even a potential transfer.

Tottenham Hotspur have been reluctant to splash the cash in the market under the leadership of Mauricio Pochettino, often taking the more efficient route in trying to nurture players from their own academy. However, considering the fact that the Spurs may miss out on Ross Barkley in January, the Argentine mastermind could be forced to set his sights on this highly rated German midfielder.

Indeed! Leon Goretzka’s performance in the league and the Confederations Cup is worth taking a note. Not only did he manage to perform well in the middle of the park but he is also leading his club to one of their most successful league starts in recent memory.

Schalke are currently level on points with third-placed Dortmund, which in truth, is a big achievement considering their underwhelming performances in recent years. And Leon Goretzka has played a key role in that success.

The 22-year-old midfield sensation has everything it needs to thrive as a top class midfielder in any form of the game. He is blessed with terrific tenacity and leadership qualities, which you would normally expect from a top class central midfield. The German International excels in making well-timed challenges and is very good at making key interceptions to break off opposition’s passing lanes.

He can influence his team with his industrious performances from the centre of the pitch. His tall figure also lends him an advantage when it comes to the aerial duels. In addition, Goretzka is a very versatile midfielder who can also act as a holding midfielder too.

There’s no doubt that Leon Goreztka will surely become one of Europe’s highly-rated midfielders in the coming years and acquire his services in January should the top priority for Tottenham Hotspur. His arrival at the club, will significantly strengthen their qualities in midfield, and might as well make them a top title contender, should they manage to hold onto their star players.
