Tottenham transfer target Kevin Wimmer has confirmed that he has held talks with Mauricio Pochettino's men, according to Goal.com.
The 22-year-old is available for a reported £4million fee and would fit into Mauricio Pochettino's new remit of signing young, hungry players eager to make an impact at White Hart Lane
The Koln centre back has confirmed that talks have taken place, which means he's a very strong contender to be part of Pochettino's first major summer of spending in search of success in North London.
Spurs already working on transfers
"I do not understand why my phone is suddenly overflowing," Wimmer told Express, according to Goal.com. "There were negotiations with Tottenham Hotspur, but nothing is fixed yet."
In 25 games in the Bundesliga in which Wimmer has played this season, FC Koln have kept nine clean sheets. Wimmer, an Austrian international, is known for being a tough-tackling, determined defender who is also fairly mobile.
Changes needed at centre-back
Should he arrive this summer he will replace outgoing captain Younes Kaboul and Romanian defender Vlad Chiriches as Pochettino continues his revolution at White Hart Lane.
While the Argentine has settled on a core 14 players or so, with the likes of Harry Kane, Ryan Mason, Eric Dier and Nabil Bentaleb establishing themselves in the starting XI, there are plenty of players who are surplus to requirements.
Kaboul, Chiriches, Etienne Capoue and Emmanuel Adebayor will be the first pushed towards the Tottenham exit door but the likes of Paulinho, Roberto Soldado and Aaron Lennon could well follow.
