However, Tottenham will only allow the player to leave for a fee of between £8-10m.
Out-of-favour Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Lewis Holtby is hoping to quit the north London club before the January transfer window closes on Friday, according to the player’s agent in the Metro.

The Germany international has only been at White Hart Lane for just over a year now, with Holtby initially arriving at Tottenham from Bundesliga outfit Schalke 04 in the previous winter window for a nominal fee of just 1.75m euros with the player’s contract set to expire that summer.
However, the 23-year-old has since found it hard to win a regular starting berth in the club’s midfield, especially since new manager Tim Sherwood replaced Andre Villas-Boas in the hot seat in north London.
And with the likes of Fulham, Borussia Dortmund and Schalke all said to be interested in signing Holtby this month, his days as a Spurs player appear numbered.
“My feeling is he will leave but it’s not in our hands at the moment,” said his agent Marcus Noack.
“Tottenham have to agree to let him go first. We hope to find a solution in the next couple of days.
“I think it will be a loan because it is difficult for anyone to buy Lewis.”
