Timo Werner set to extend Tottenham loan stay

Timo Werner is reportedly set to extend his loan at Tottenham in the summer, as Spurs are set to agree to another temporary agreement.

According to Fabrizio Romano, Tottenham are set to extend the loan deal of Timo Werner by another year, as the 28-year-old is all set to stay for another season. The new agreement does come with a buy-option rather than an obligation, with the German international happy to continue in North London.

Tottenham set to extend Timo Werner’s loan

Timor Werner arrived from RB Leipzig in a rather surprising move in January and has done fairly well at Tottenham during his short spell there. However, there have been doubts about his future at the club, with some reports stating Spurs had a purchase option for the German winger.

Tottenham were expected to decide on his future ahead of the summer, and now the verdict might have come first-hand. Fabrizio Romano states that Werner will stay put in North London for another season on loan, with the move likely to favour Spurs to a large extent.

Tottenham have been in the market for a new wide attacker, and that is despite the doubts about whether they will make Werner’s move permanent. However, now it appears that Spurs have sought an agreement with RB Leipzig to extend Werner’s loan deal by another year.

Romano states, that Spurs will have a purchase option in the deal worth €15-16 million, meaning Tottenham will have no obligation to sign the German star on a permanent basis. To be fair on Werner, he should be judged throughout the season rather than six months, and now there will be the focus on the Champions League winner and how he performs for the North Londoners.

Tottenham’s summer plans

Ange Postecoglou remains intent on strengthening his squad, although he might have liked the team to play UEFA Champions League football next term. However, the clear objective is to finish in the top four next season and perform better overall than the season they left behind.

A new centre-back seems like one of the objectives, while there will be a decision on a new striker depending on what Postecoglou thinks about Richarlison ahead of the new season. With Werner likely to be secured, they might target a new midfielder to shore up the central areas.
