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?
