Spurs: Doubts emerge over Hotspur Way deal for £63m star Conte wants to sign

Tottenham Hotspur manager Antonio Conte

Transfer insider Dean Jones would be surprised if Tottenham managed to sign Bayern Munich winger Serge Gnabry this summer.

The 26-year-old, who was once on the books of Spurs’ north London rivals Arsenal, has been linked with a move to Antonio Conte’s side.

What is the latest news involving Gnabry?

According to the Daily Star, Conte is pushing Tottenham to sign Gnabry as he looks to improve his attack.

The German has had another strong season at Bayern, scoring 13 league goals to help the club clinch their 10th consecutive Bundesliga title.

Gnabry, however, is set to enter the final year of his contract, a development Tottenham and other clubs could try and pounce on.

As well as Spurs, Real Madrid are also said to be interested in the former Arsenal man, so Bayern could have a fight on their hands if their aim is to keep hold of him this summer.

What has Jones said about Gnabry and Tottenham?

While Gnabry’s contract situation is one to keep an eye on, Jones cannot see the Germany international moving to Hotspur Way in the upcoming transfer window.

Speaking to GIVEMESPORT, the football journalist said: “I’ll be surprised if that one came through. It’s not one that I’ve heard. I can see why they’d be interested in a player like him, but I’ll be very surprised if Gnabry took the decision to go to Tottenham at this point.”

Would Gnabry be a good signing for Tottenham?

Quite frankly, it is hard to imagine Gnabry leaving Bayern for Tottenham, especially if the Premier League outfit miss out on Champions League football.

If they did manage to somehow get this transfer over the line, however, it would be some coup for them.

Do you know this obscure player Tottenham signed in the January transfer window?

Gnabry is probably one of the best wide men in world football right now, with Spurs supporters seeing first-hand what he can do.

The £63m-rated star scored four goals against the English side back in the 2019/20 Champions League campaign before netting twice against their London rivals Chelsea in the same competition. In total, Gnabry registered nine times in 10 appearances as Bayern went on to win the trophy.

He is a dangerous winger, one every manager would probably love to have, including Conte. Again, though, you have to question if Tottenham have the appeal to lure him back to north London. And without a place in Europe’s elite competition next season, it surely then becomes mission impossible.
