Tottenham have joined the race to sign Bayern Munich playmaker Mario Götze – and the Tottenham supporters on Twitter are in a state of happy shock.

As reported by Football Insider, Tottenham and the attacking midfielder’s former club Borussia Dortmund are showing strong interest in the World Cup winner.

A section of the Spurs fanbase fear the deal will never happen, but other pointed to the signing of Dutch playmaker Rafael van der Vaart as proof the club can land Europe’s elite players.

There was some debate about the wages the Bayern player would demand, but one Spurs fan felt that should not be the issue when linked with such a highly rated player.

It is said that newly appointed Bayern boss Carlo Ancelotti is willing to cut ties with his player and cash in on what would be a £30million-plus transfer fee.

One Tottenham supporter felt if the German international wants to get his career back on track then playing regular football at White Hart Lane under the guidance of Mauricio Pochettino is the perfect fit for the World Cup winner.

Here are some of their reactions on Twitter:
