Supporters of Tottenham Hotspur have recently reacted to a transfer claim from Fabrizio Romano regarding Marcel Sabitzer and Dayot Upamecano.

According to a recent tweet from in-the-know journalist Romano, RB Leipzig are keen to keep the midfielder and the centre-back this month.

Supposedly, there are many clubs interested in acquiring Sabitzer and they are lining up a potential move for the 26-year-old Austrian in the summer.

As stated by Romano, one of those sides is Jose Mourinho’s north London outfit.

While there are ‘many clubs’ interested in signing Sabitzer, there is supposedly ‘nothing advanced’ at the moment with him or Upamecano.

This claim was relayed to Tottenham fans on Monday by Last Word On Spurs and it had many of them reacting.
