Tottenham Hotspur are chasing three players from the Bundesliga in this summer’s transfer window: VfB Stuttgart Timo Werner, Bayer Leverkusen’s Christoph Kramer and Borussia Dortmund’s Sven Bender.
According to the Express, Mauricio Pochettino is looking to further strengthen his squad ahead of the 2015-16 campaign, and has etched the names of the German trio on to his wish list.
Werner, 19 – a forward – is capable of playing in a wide role or as a leading centre-forward and, the Express state, could be available for £10m.
Kramer, 24 – a defensive midfielder – could be an excellent replacement to Paulinho, who recently left White Hart Lane and sealed a move to Chinese club Guangzhou Evergrande in a £9.8m deal [via the Daily Mail].
Bender, 26 – also a defensive midfielder – is likely to prove the most challenging of his targets, with Arsenal and Barcelona, the Express claim, said to be interested in his signature.
Both Kramer and Bender are senior Germany internationals, while teenager Werner plays for his country’s Under-19 squad.

If Spurs are successful in their attempts to clinch the signing of the trio, it would certainly make for a busy summer of activity from the north London outfit – who have thus far made three acquisitions and offloaded four senior players.
