Tottenham Hotspur Eager To Seal A Move For This Bundesliga Midfielder: The Right Choice For Spurs?

According to a recent report by Sky Sports, Tottenham Hotspur are interested in securing the services of Florian Grillitsch from 1899 TSG Hoffenheim. The same report has also revealed that the feedback on the player has been positive after Spurs sent scouts to catch the midfielder in action for both club and country.

Sky Sports have also mentioned that the Austrian talent has a release clause of just over £18m in his current contract with the Bundesliga outfit which is set to run out in the summer of 2021.

Grillitsch has played regularly for the German team and has put in some commanding displays in midfield during this campaign so far. Spurs are still on the lookout for a long-term replacement for Mousa Dembele and Grillitsch fits the bill perfectly. Dembele is reportedly close to sealing a move to the Chinese Super League this month which means that there would be a midfield place up for grabs in Mauricio Pochettino’s first-team.

The Austrian midfielder has featured in 20 matches for Hoffenheim this term and has registered one goal so far across all competitions. He has also managed to earn 13 international caps for the Austrian national side and has one goal to his name.

Grillitsch grew up playing football back in his home nation and has spent a major chunk of his youth career playing for AKA St. Pölten. In 2014, Werder Bremen decided to bring him to the Bundesliga and gave him a chance to prove his worth at the top level. He spent three years at the German club before Hoffenheim decided to snap him up on a free transfer in the summer of 2017. 

The Austrian is a talented midfielder who can distribute the ball with accuracy and is also quite capable of travelling with the ball out in the wide areas to set-up his teammates in the final third.

The acquisition of Grillitsch will undoubtedly bolster Mauricio Pochettino’s midfield options at the North London club. Tottenham are in dire need of a holding midfielder with Harry Winks, Eric Dier, Moussa Sissoko and Victor Wanyama battling for a midfield berth in Pochettino’s starting XI. The Bundesliga prospect will be a perfect fit for the Argentine manager’s style of play at Tottenham and his defensive qualities in midfield could also give Spurs an edge in the Premier League title race.
