Last week it seemed certain that Mario Gotze was moving back to Borussia Dortmund, but it seems as if negotiations are not going as smoothly as once thought.

The Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke has suggested that Gotze’s transfer from Bayern Munich is far from close.

“We have not reached an agreement with anyone, including the player,” Watze said.

“It has to be financially feasible for us.”

Spurs were linked with a move for Gotze and reports claim that the club are still actively looking for another attacking midfielder, despite the imminent signing of the Marseille winger Georges Kevin-N’Koudou.

Targets such as Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Franco Vazquez have joined other clubs, while Georginio Wijnaldum is considered too expensive. With Dortmund struggling to get a deal for Gotze done, could Tottenham still have an outside chance of landing the German international?



  1. Ante Coric looks so much better suited to what we need. Gotze has never looked best in the centre and has failed to impress Guardiola, who like Poch is another disciple of bielsas high workrate. Thus dont know why he’d suit us.

  2. Just build the time machine 2 years ago…now is 1966 for you
    If he is not in form VDV was johny walker and so was E.Davids.We need world class player.I believe we’ll better off with him than the new French Maradona

  3. I like to dream. For an outlay well within our means we could have:-
    Walker Alderwiereld Vertongen Rose
    Trippier R Sigurdsson Wimmer Hector (Jonas)

    Dier Dembele
    Malli (Yunus) Wanyama

    Dybala (Paulo) Eriksen Costa (Douglas)
    Nkoudou Alli Lamela

    And still have

    De Bie
    Walker-Peters Carter-Vickers Ball Ogilvie
    Winks Amos Lesniak
    Bennetts Tracy Edwards Oduwa

    etc. in reserve

    Unstoppable or what? !

    Just a thought.

  4. Damn, I forgot to mention Gotze. When I was a kid I spent my Birthday money on a single record by the Archies called Sugar Sugar, It was the last time I backed a one hit wonder.

  5. Eddie – Halilovic has great dribbling ability but is a very selfish player! .. I’d love Götze, he’s a hero.. But just don’t see it.
