Tottenham are reportedly targeting a summer move for Freiburg defender Robin Koch, as they eye a long-term replacement for Toby Alderweireld.

A report in the Daily Mail claims that Alderweireld is still keen on quitting the club this summer, with his contract due to expire in 2020 and a £25m escape clause in play.

The Belgian’s release clause will begin at the start of this summer’s transfer window until the last two weeks of the period, with Manchester United still keen as well as several clubs in Germany and Italy.

With that in mind, Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino is already looking at alternatives to the former Atletico Madrid man and Koch has emerged as one of those.

The highly-rated 22-year-old has played 23 times for Freiburg this season, with the club currently sitting 13th in the Bundesliga, and it is reported that a fee of £12m would be enough to prise him away.
