The protracted summer transfer saga surrounding Tottenham icon Harry Kane may have taken yet another twist after Spurs have now been credited with growing interest in Bayern Munich starlet Mathys Tel.
Per initial reports from The Telegraph’s Matt Law, Bayern hopes to finally have sit-down talks with Spurs chairman Daniel Levy early next week, with chief executive Jan-Christian Dreesen, and technical director Marco Neppe, set to fly to London in the hopes of finding common ground surrounding the future of England’s star man.
But given Tottenham’s need to find a suitable replacement for Kane should he opt for a move to the Allianz Arena this summer, Spurs have set their sights on possibly including discussions for Tel.
Recent quotes from Bayern boss Thomas Tuchel have thrown a measure of uncertainty around the future of the prolific youth international goalscorer, with Tuchel potentially open to parting ways with the Frenchman “if something changes very late in the transfer window.”
The French youth international arrived in Bavaria last summer after rising through the youth ranks at Stade Rennais and is widely viewed as one of the most gifted U19 talents in Europe before ultimately scoring five goals in 22 Bundesliga appearances.
Speculation regarding how Tuchel views the youngster remains, however, with Tel seemingly still not being given enough minutes during Bayern’s pre-season preparations this summer, and instead, remaining second-fiddle to the likes of Serge Gnabry and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting being selected to lead the line ahead of the Paris-born teenager.
Whether if Spurs are keen to bring Tel to north London on loan first, or if they are instead interested in a full transfer, remains to be seen, but should Kane depart Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, new Spurs boss Ange Postecoglou would have just Brazilian international Richarlison as his only recognized center-forward in the senior side.
