Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly hopeful of securing the services of Robin Koch from Leeds United at a modest fee following the Yorkshire club’s relegation to the Championship.
According to a report from Football Insider, the Lilywhites have expressed a strong interest in adding the defensive player to their squad for the upcoming season.
With just one year remaining on his contract at Elland Road and Leeds United set to compete in England’s second tier, it is expected that Koch, who has been a consistent performer under various managers, would prefer to remain in the Premier League.
The potential sale of the 26-year-old German international could provide Leeds United with much-needed funds for squad reinvestment as they aim for a swift return to the top flight. The reported value of Koch’s transfer stands at a modest £15 million.
Tottenham, known for their prudent approach to spending under chairman Daniel Levy, often prioritise shrewd signings over big-money “Galactico-style” acquisitions.
Koch, who has donned the number five jersey for Leeds United and has represented Germany on eight occasions, fits the profile of a player who could meet Tottenham’s requirements. Over the course of his three-year spell at Leeds, Koch has amassed 77 appearances across all competitions, showcasing his experience and reliability at the back.
