Reported Tottenham target Max Kruse has alarmed Spurs after he handed in a transfer request at current club Wolfsburg, according to kicker.
The striker only joined the Bundesliga outfit last year, but has endured a poor run of form, and is looking for a fresh start abroad this summer.
The 28-year-old front-man managed a below-par six goals in 32 league appearances last season, and the German has decided to hand in a transfer request and look for a move abroad rather than try to rediscover his best form at Wolfsburg.
Despite last season’s hiccup, Kruse has shown that he can score goals, scoring 23 goals in a two-year spell at Borussia Monchengladbach, where he appeared 66 times. However, this may not be the number of goals that Mauricio Pochettino will be looking for in his next striker.
It is no secret that Spurs have been looking fir a striker to provide backup for Harry Kane, and although 23 goals in two seasons may not be sufficient for a new first-choice striker, Kruse could prove to provide good backup.
However, Kruse has yet to play in the Premier League, and it remains to be seen whether the striker would be suited to the style of play in the England’s top division. This is why maybe Troy Deeney would seem a safer move for Spurs, but taking the risk could in the end pay off.
