’11-assist & 6 goals’ – Tottenham are keen on signing Borussia Monchengladbach German international


Tottenham are keen on signing Borussia Monchengladbach forward Jonas Hofmann this summer, as reported by Kicker.

The 28-year-old has also caught the eye of another Premier League club, with Chelsea rumoured to be keeping tabs on him, as informs the givemesport.

There are also some La Liga sides interested in Hofmann, but it is understood that a move to the Premier League would be more likely due to financial restrictions in Spain.

This appears to put Tottenham and Chelsea in the driving seat to try to secure his signature in the coming months.

The German international has had a standout campaign in the Bundesliga, registering six goals and 11 assists for Monchengladbach (via WhoScored).

He has delivered 57 key passes in the league – only Son Heung-min (75) has managed more for Tottenham in England’s top-flight.

His performances earned him an average match rating of 7.13, making him the highest-rated player in the Monchengladbach squad.

Bayern have won the Bundesliga title for the last nine consecutive seasons, so it is rare to see them struggle against a team or an individual player.

However, back in January, Hofmann gave them all sorts of problems.

Robert Lewandowski and Leon Goretzka had put Bayern in control early on, as their goals helped the champions move into a 2-0 lead inside the opening half hour.

Hofmann did not give up hope, though, and netted twice in the space of 10 minutes to bring Monchengladbach level heading into the interval.

He then set up Florian Neuhaus for the winning goal in the 49th minute, as Monchengladbach held on to record a dramatic 3-2 victory.
