Tottenham Hotspur are pricing Kevin Wimmer out of a move away from the club, according to the player's agent.

Reports claim Mauricio Pochettino is willing to listen to offers for the 24-year-old, but is holding out for a sizeable bid.

Wimmer's agent, Jurgen Werner, says the Austrian international is a target for club's in both Serie A and the Bundesliga.

However, Spurs are thought to want £20m for the centre-back, who arrived at White Hart Lane in May 2015 for a reported £4.3m.

Werner believes this fee is too hefty for a player who made just four Premier League starts last season.

"They (Spurs) still see him as a talent," Werner told German website Spox "There was also interest from Germany or Italy but, because of the price, it is difficult for all clubs outside the Premier League.

"We have to see what is happening on the English market."

A route into the first team looks to be a tricky one for Wimmer, with Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen forming a formidable defensive pairing.

The former has two years remaining on his current contract, but Spurs are understandably eager to extend his deal, which includes a £25m release clause which becomes active in summer 2019.

Spurs have no intention of allowing a player who has helped transform them into genuine title contenders leave the club and are reportedly preparing to open negotiations.

Alderweireld is currently on around £50,000-a-week, but expects an increase to the same level as the club's top earners, such as Harry Kane and Hugo Lloris.

The Lilywhites are said to want to extend the 28-year-old's deal by at least a year and ward of interest both in the the Premier League and overseas.

Inter Milan are thought to be particularly keen, with the Chinese-backed Serie A outfit eager to recapture their former glories.
