In a recent report, SportBILD has claimed that Tottenham Hotspur are showing interest in recruiting Red Bull Leipzig midfielder Marcel Sabitzer in the summer. It is believed that the German club are expecting to receive offers for their prized asset, with Spurs eyeing a move for him during the summer transfer window (via SportBILD).
Sabitzer’s Solid Season At The Red Bull Arena
Sabitzer is having a good season in Germany as he has been responsible for putting in a series of influential displays at the centre of Julian Nagelsmann’s midfield. The 26-year-old has participated in 27 matches for RB Leipzig this term, registering six goals and six assists on all fronts.
The Wels-born sensation has performed well to make an impact at both ends of the pitch because he is averaging 1.2 tackles, 1.6 interceptions, 0.9 clearances, 1.8 shots, 1.1 key passes and 0.5 dribbles per game in the Bundesliga. He has even been accurate with his ball-distribution after making 80% of his attempted passes in league football (stats via whoscored).
Sabitzer is primarily a box to box holding midfielder but can also function in the number ten position or play as a makeshift right-winger if needed. The way the Austria international has been playing this season, it is no surprise that a top club like Tottenham are interested in acquiring his services when the transfer window reopens later this year.
What Are The Austrian Midfield Ace’s Best Attributes?
Sabitzer is a deceptively quick dribbler with the ball and can make some driving sprints towards the opponent’s penalty box. He packs a lot of power and precision with his shots from long range and can set-up chances for others around him.
What makes him such a valuable member of Nagelsmann’s squad is his ability to read the danger quickly and earn possession back for his team. He also possesses good defensive awareness and can make some crucial recovering runs inside his half when needed.
Is Sabitzer The Right Fit For Spurs?
An all-round midfielder of Sabitzer’s quality will be a massive coup for Jose Mourinho if he can get a deal done for the player at the end of this campaign. At 26, Sabitzer is playing at his prime and would bolster the quality of Tottenham’s midfield considerably for the coming seasons.
Sabitzer will be an upgrade over most of Mourinho’s current midfield options and could form a dominant partnership with Pierre-Emile Højbjerg if Spurs can get the Bundesliga star on board this summer. All in all, the 46-time Austria international will be a great fit for the North London outfit as he would help them compete for some major silverware in the years to come.
