Tottenham want to sell Kevin Wimmer this summer and replace him with an English centre-back, according to The Mirror.

Wimmer fell out of favour in the previous campaign and was only used when absolutely needed. The 24-year-old was drafted in for big matches against Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester City but failed to suitably impress in any of those games.

Last month the Austrian’s agent, Jurgen Werner, suggested Wimmer could become a regular at Spurs if he isn’t sold this summer.

But it’s unlikely Wimmer will break into the first eleven any time soon, so it wouldn’t be a surprise to see him sold in the coming weeks.

Tottenham value the centre-back at around £20 million, and he is believed to be attracting interest from Southampton. The price might have to come down first, though.

The Mirror claims Spurs are monitoring Swansea City’s Alfie Mawson and Middlesbrough’s Ben Gibson as potential replacements. Both players will command hefty transfer fees, as most English footballers do these days.

  1. Who says Spurs want to sell Wimmer? The way I heard it, Spurs absolutely do not want to sell Wimmer. He is a little bit unsettled, apparently, due to his lack of playing time last season – but it has been suggested that that was because playing him may have triggered certain add on clauses.

    So, if Spurs don’t want to sell him how can they want replace him?
