Spurs fans have been discussing Bayer Leverkusen ace Kai Havertz after it was suggested by Darren Bent that he would a great signing for the Lilywhites.
He said: “His favoured position is a number 10 so that would be perfect because you’re talking about him, Harry Kane and Heung-min Son. You’ve got to rip that transfer sheet up and go: ‘He’s the best player available, we’ve got to take him.'”
The German international is currently valued at £72.9 million by Transfermarkt, so Spurs would really have to go all out if they wanted to bring Havertz to North London ahead of next season, which perhaps seems unlikely when you consider it has been previously reported that they will be reliant on swap deals and free transfers this summer.
Should Spurs try and sign Havertz this summer?

If we could get him it would be incredible, but not happening

These Spurs fans all seem to agree that Havertz would be a top signing this summer, although some expressed doubts that Spurs would be able to convince him to make the move to North London.
What do we think?
Havertz has been in superb form so far this season; averaging a 7.39 rating for his performances in the Bundesliga, but with his value so high at the moment, it seems unlikely that the Lilywhites will be able to sign him at this moment in time.
