Timo Werner will undergo his first part of the medical as he closes on joining Tottenham, according to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano.
The 27-year-old striker will join on loan, where Spurs will have the option to sign him permanently for just £15m in the summer.
Romano says that all documents are ready and set to be signed between the north London club and RB Leipzig.
“Timo Werner, on his way to complete the final part of his medical tests as new Tottenham player. All documents are ready and set to be signed between Spurs and RB Leipzig. Buy option clause: €17m,” wrote Romano on X.
Spurs have also agreed a deal to sign Radu Dragusin from Genoa, where Djed Spence will move in the opposite direction on loan for the rest of the season.
Can Postecoglou get the best out of Werner?
Only a few years back, Werner was one of the hottest properties in Europe. After scoring 78 goals in 127 appearances for RB Leipzig, he was tipped to take the Premier League by storm, but his move to Chelsea didn’t work out well.
At his age, he should be playing at the peak of his form, but instead, he is fast fading away and his value has dropped down considerably. Put simply, he is at a crossroads in his career and his move to Tottenham could be vital.
All eyes will be on Postecoglou and whether he can transform the player to where we all know what he is capable of. He will be eager to prove a point that he is good enough to play in the Premier League, and that’s why the deal could be a gamechanger for Spurs.
He failed to reignite his career upon returning to Leipzig but an ankle injury before the World Cup in Qatar ruined everything. He hasn’t been in the best of form this season, managing just two Bundesliga goals and two starts across eight appearances.
