A Tottenham Hotspur delegation are due to travel to Germany next week as head coach Mauricio Pochettino attempts to add a forward and a midfielder to his squad before the new season kicks off.

Spurs are interested in Stuttgart forward Timo Werner and have been linked Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Christoph Kramer and Borussia Dortmund midfielder Sven Bender.

Werner, who can play through the middle or on either flank, appears to be the most realistic target of the trio and would cost Tottenham around £10million.

Having strengthened his defence and successfully offloaded a number of unwanted players, Pochettino is keen to add at least two more players to his squad and wants a forward who can play off the flank and a combative midfielder.

Tottenham are increasingly confident of offloading Emanuel Adebayor to Aston Villa, while Real Sociedad, Sevilla and Villarreal have shown an interest in Roberto Soldado.

Other than looking in Germany, Spurs are also keeping an eye on whether or not Saido Berahino signs a new contract at West Bromwich Albion and have also been monitoring the situations of Everton’s James McCarthy and Chelsea’s Victor Moses.

Berahino has two years to run on his £15,000-a-week West Brom contract, with the Midlands club prepared to double his wages. But the 21-year-old could earn a lot more by moving to White Hart Lane.
