Spurs have been heavily linked with the Austrian centre half this season and it was reported by the Telegraph in March that a deal had already been agreed between the two clubs.
Any potential deal is yet to be officially confirmed, but it does appear that the Premier League side are actively on the lookout for a centre half in the summer, which will increase speculation over the futures of the current defenders at the club.
Younes Kaboul is the club captain, but has not started a league game for the club since the 2-1 home defeat by Stoke City in November, while Federico Fazio and Vlad Chiriches are yet to impress since arriving in North London.
The 22-year-old Austrian international has missed just one league game all season for Koln in the Bundesliga and is eager to test himself in England:
“For me, the transfer is a big step, a step with which I can develop myself,’ he said. ‘That’s why I want to take the chance.” he told the Metro.
“I’m not someone who wants to stop developing. That is why England would be the next step.” he added.
