FC Koln defender Kevin Wimmer says it would be a "dream" to join Tottenham this summer.

The 22-year-old has been linked with a move to White Hart Lane, and last week reports suggested that a £4.4m transfer had been agreed. Wimmer has denied this, but said that the clubs are "negotiating".

The Austria international Wimmer told Laola TV: "The two clubs have yet to agree because of the transfer fee. They are still negotiating.

"It would be a dream to move to a top club like Tottenham. For me, the transfer is a big step, a step with which I can develop myself. That's why I want to take the chance. 

"I'm not someone who wants to stop developing. That is why England would be the next step. I'm playing in Germany. This is pretty much the best league in the world.

"The English Premier League is the only one that can match that. For me, the English league would be a great challenge. There I can develop because it's very demanding. I'm a fan of English football."

The 22-year-old, who has one senior cap for Austria, has made 25 appearances in the Bundesliga for 12th-placed FC Koln this season.
