Spurs sign Timo Werner on loan for 2024/25 season

The German winger, who initially joined the club on loan from RB Leipzig in January, will return to Tottenham Hotspur Stadium for at least one more season. The 15-million-euro option to buy Werner will stay in effect for after the 2024/25 season.

The first "Here We Go" from famed transfer reporter Fabrizio Romano for Spurs brings back a familiar name, as German forward Timo Werner will once again join the Lilywhites on loan. The terms cover the 2024/25 season and feature the same buy option as the initial loan earlier this year, 15 million euros.

During his first stint under manager Ange Postecoglou, Werner was a solid rotational piece for the attack-minded Tottenham gaffer. The 28-year-old pitched in two goals and three assists during the season's second half, notching scoring chances against Brentford and Aston Villa.

One could say he was thrown into the fire, as shortly after his signing he started for Spurs against rivals Manchester United. He played well in his debut, assisting Rodrigo Bentancur's goal in the 2-2 draw at Old Trafford.

Although his season ended early due to a hamstring injury, Timo is a solid option for Postecoglou. He's not a clinical finisher and can be too passive at times, but he doesn't need to be aggressive.

He just needs to continue to push the ball into the box and create chances for Spurs to score using his crosses and speed to get past defenders. Big Ange knows what he has in the German, who has disappointed a bit ever since Chelsea paid 50 million euros to sign him from RB Leipzig after his first stint there.

As long as this is the first of many signings coming this summer, then this is a good first step. Werner may have his haters in the Tottenham fanbase, but the more attacking options that Postecoglou has come next season and beyond, the better.

The Lilywhites will be vying for even more silverware next season with their place in the Europa League, and that is something that Timo can help with once he's back to full health. The German national is also said to be happy in North London and under Big Ange, so hopefully that turns into an even better form come next season.
