A previous report from Sport1 tentatively linked Tottenham with a move with the Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder, though it seems a more detailed plan with regards to a potential transfer to north London has emerged from The Mirror.
According to Darren Lewis, Paris Saint-Germain manager Mauricio Pochettino is thought to be ‘determined to land’ Alli prior to the closure of the transfer window next Monday, and with the Ligue 1 side ‘confident’ of getting a deal over the line, Tottenham have been considering replacements for the 24-year-old, one of whom is said to be Neuhaus.
The £25.2 million-rated 23-year-old has highly impressed over his 17 Bundesliga appearances for Marco Rose’s side this season, scoring three goals and providing four assists, as well as averaging a WhoScored match rating of 6.94/10 – ranking him as the club’s fifth-best performer in the German top flight.
And, after Daily Hotspur relayed the report regarding Neuhaus on Twitter, fans of Tottenham flocked to have their say on the matter, with many appearing delighted at the prospect of their club landing the Germany international.
Would Neuhaus be a good signing for Spurs?
So, what exactly did these Tottenham Hotspur fans have to say in reaction to their club’s reported interest in Florian Neuhaus?
“Wow. This would be absolutely incredible.”
“Probably would be our 2nd best midfielder easily. World-class”
“Yo that guy’s next level”
“His long passes – next Toni Kroos”
“better than Havertz”
“Get it done”
“A smudge of Kroos and a pint of Pirlo with the legs and stamina of Hojbjerg”
“I am all over this”
All in all, it would appear that the vast majority of these Tottenham fans are over the moon with their club’s link to Neuhaus, with some dubbing the central midfielder as world-class, while others even went as far to claim they believe the 23-year-old could be the next Toni Kroos.
