Three days ago we covered claims from Germany that Tottenham Hotspur are interested in Eintracht Frankfurt attacker Ante Rebic.
The Premier League club were said to have been keen on the player before he moved to Fiorentina, and that fit in with many Spurs links to Croatian youngsters around the time.
A tough time at the Tuscany club saw Rebic move to the Bundesliga on loan and Frankfurt this summer activated their buying option. SportBild claimed Tottenham ‘were showing interest again’ and that it would take €30m+ to get him from Frankfurt this summer.
Now the figures are chaging somewhat.
Bild say that after ‘internal discussions’, it had been decided at Frankfurt that €40m could be the trigger for Rebic, but his good World Cup performances for Croatia have changed things.
Rebic may not have been one of Croatia’s standout performers in the 3-0 victory over Argentina, but he managed to get a goal and that’s enthused the German media. Bild ask ‘Is he already worth €60m?’ to which the Tottenham answer at this stage is probably ‘no’.
Frankfurt’s general manager Bruno Hübner has told Bild: “Of course he has gained value through the cup and now value through the World Cup, he is now in focus for the big clubs.”
Rebic scored two goals and was Man of the Match as Eintracht Frankfurt beat Bayern Munich in the German cup final. The 24 year old is on the rise, but Spurs don’t seem like the type of club to go and blow €60m on a player who was considered worth half that a week before, just because of a goal against Argentina.
