Earlier this week we relayed reports suggesting Tottenham are interested in signing Hoffenheim defender Jeremy Toljan.
A story in the Portuguese press went as far to say Spurs are closing in on a deal for the 22-year-old.
But there have been further developments. Sky Sports claims Toljan’s agent has told them there has been no contact from Tottenham concerning a potential approach for the player.
The Mirror believes Spurs are very much keen on the right-back, who can also play on the left, but he will cost more than initially expected.
Toljan was thought to be available for around £3 million, but The Mirror contends Tottenham will have to cough up £7 million.
That really shouldn’t be much of a problem if Spurs truly want to sign him.
Elsewhere, German outlet Bild suggests Bayern Munich could hijack Tottenham’s bid for the defender.
There’s likely to be further updates once Spurs either make a bid to Hoffenheim or approach Toljan’s agent. Until then, it’s all conjecture.
