Bad news for West Ham as report claims Tottenham want Robin Koch to replace Pochettino signing

According to a report from Bild, Tottenham are keen to sign Freiburg ace Robin Koch to replace Juan Foyth. And that will be a problem for West Ham, with David Moyes allegedly after the German.

According to a report from the Daily Star, the Hammers want to sign the 23-year-old.

Moyes will be desperate to bolster his central defensive ranks at the London Stadium this summer.

And so will Jose Mourinho at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Bild claims that Koch is a primary target for Spurs. And the 6ft 3in centre-back could be a candidate to replace Juan Foyth, if the Argentine ends up leaving north London.

The 22-year-old was signed by Mauricio Pochettino in the summer of 2017 for around £8 million, but he has struggled to establish himself at Tottenham.

So Koch would be a useful addition for either West Ham or Spurs.

And the German defender seems to have all of the attributes needed to succeed in the Premier League.

He is big and strong, and his approach to the game is very much no-nonsense.

The 23-year-old has played 31 Bundesliga games for Freiburg this season, scoring one goal in the process (Who Scored).

In those 31 outings, the German has averaged 1.1 tackles, 1.5 interceptions and three clearances per game. He has also won an average of 3.7 aerial duals per game during that period (Who Scored).

Koch has it all. He is still very young, and will surely go on to become a truly top class centre-back.

The Daily Star claims that Freiburg are ready to sell the 6ft 3in giant for around £19 million this summer.

And that would represent great value for either Tottenham or West Ham. If Spurs really want Koch, however, the Hammers could be set to miss out on the Freiburg ace.
