Tottenham are prepared to sell Kevin Wimmer this summer if a potential suitor can match his £17.5 million price tag, according to reports in Germany.

Spurs bought Wimmer from Bundesliga club FC Cologne two years ago for £5 million. If his new price tag is met, the club will be making a significant profit the defender, who has spent the last 12 months on the fringes of the squad.

The Austrian enjoyed a decent first season in England, deputising for the injured Jan Vertonghen for a string of matches in early 2016. Wimmer’s impressive displays meant Vertonghen’s absence was barely noticed.

But Wimmer was barely used in the 2016/17 campaign. Injuries meant Mauricio Pochettino was forced to pick him on a few occasions; he scored an own goal in the 1-1 draw at Arsenal and struggled in big games against Chelsea and Manchester City.

Pochettino’s trust in the 24-year-old continued to wane over the season and now, according to Express Deutschland, it appears Wimmer will leave the club this summer. In my opinion, Tottenham would do well to receive between £10 million and £15 millon.
