Tottenham in talks with father of Liverpool target Julian Brandt

Tottenham have approached Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Julian Brandt.

BILD says the 23-year-old is likely to leave Bayer Leverkusen this summer, regardless of whether they seal a Champions League place on the final day of the Bundesliga season.

Brandt is heading into the final two years of his contract at the BayArena, and can leave for just £21million due to a release clause in his contract.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp had initially made Brandt his No.1 transfer target in 2017, but unable to reach a deal with Bayer, they moved for Mo Salah instead.

Brandt has again been linked with a switch to Anfield, as Klopp looks to strengthen ahead of another Premier League push next season.

But Spurs have made their own push for Brandt, and holding talks with the player's father.
