Tottenham move to the front in chase for German ace
The name Marko Marin has been doing the rounds for the last few months in the transfer gossip columns and the young Werder Bremen attacking midfielder has found himself linked with a whole host of clubs including the likes of Manchester United and Arsenal, however it is apparently Harry Redknapp’s Tottenham Hotspur that is the 22 year old most likely destination.
The German press do seem a little bit more reliable than their English counterparts when it comes to transfer gossip on German players and they are linking Marin more and more with a move to White Hart Lane, this despite the fact that Spurs do already appear well served in the midfield area with likes of Modric, Huddlestone, Sandro, Lennon, Bale and others.
Redknapp has already made it clear he intends to bring in fresh players to Tottenham but the general opinion was that it would be the forward line that would see the biggest overhaul, that does not mean however, that Redknapp would necessarily miss the opportunity to sign a young player of Marin’s abilities.
No figure has been mentioned but it is the general opinion that a fee between £15 Million and £20 Million will be enough to secure Marin’s signature.
