Tottenham Hotspur are interested in a deal to sign Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Julian Brandt this summer, according to reports in the British media.

The same report says that Spurs are weighing up a move for Brandt as a potential replacement for Christian Eriksen, who has been linked with a move to La Liga this summer.

The same story says that Real Madrid and FC Barcelona could be potential destinations for Eriksen should he indeed leave.

Brandt has been in solid form for Bayer Leverkusen this season, scoring six goals and making 11 assists in 32 Bundesliga games for the German club.

Meanwhile, Tottenham’s focus will be on preparing for their crunch Champions League final showdown against Liverpool FC at the end of the season.

The Lilywhites will take on the Reds in the final in Madrid on 1 June as they look to try and win the trophy for the first time.
