In January, German publication SportBild linked Freiburg midfielder Maximilian Philipp with Tottenham and Arsenal.
Philipp is a technically gifted midfielder who has scored seven goals and assisted three in the Bundesliga this season.
The 23-year-old is seemingly a good fit for a Mauricio Pochettino side, but Philipp has all but ruled out a move to the Premier League.
In an interview with Bild, he said: “Naturally every player, including me, has the dream to play in the Champions League one day. England was always my goal. I loved the football and the fans.
“But I think now the Bundesliga has overtaken the Premier League technically, and I can also imagine staying in Freiburg forever.”
He might be simply trying to keep the Freiburg fans onside amid speculation about his future. You can watch some of his best moments below.
