Tottenham will have to pay £16.8 million if they want to sign Werder Bremen midfielder Thomas Delaney this summer, according to reports in Germany.

Delaney joined Bremen from FC Copenhagen in 2017 after making over 200 appearances for the Danish club.

He has scored three goals and provided five assists in the Bundesliga so far this season, helping Bremen steer clear of relegation trouble in a tight bottom half of the table.

Last month, reports suggested Spurs are interested in signing the 26-year-old, who dreams of playing in the Premier League.

Now, German outlet Mein Werder (spotted by HITC) believes Tottenham face competition from Premier League rivals Brighton for Delaney’s signature.

The report also claims the midfielder’s will be available for £16.8 million this summer, a valuation that is likely to attract the attention of more clubs in England during the transfer window.

Spurs are on the lookout for a long-term Mousa Dembele replacement – Delaney fits the bill positionally, but there will be questions marks over his ability if he is pursued.

Dembele will be a very difficult player to replace, and Tottenham may be forced to spend big if they want to recruit a midfielder of a similar level.
