The German midfielder faces stiff competition for a place at Spurs.
Tottenham are facing a battle to keep Lewis Holtby at White Hart Lane amid reported interest from Inter Milan.
Germany international Holtby has struggled to force his way into Andre Villas-Boas’ thoughts this season following the arrivals of Christian Eriksen, Etienne Capoue and Paulinho at White Hart Lane in the summer transfer window.
And according to Tuttomercato he could be offered an escape route from north London with Inter preparing to make another bid for the 22-year-old after they were beaten to his signature by Spurs in January.
He made 12 appearances in the latter half of the 2012/13 campaign but has fallen down the pecking order and it’s rumoured that the Nerazzurri are confident of signing the former Schalke playmaker for a knock-down fee of £1 million.
Holtby, however, seems intent to remain at Tottenham, revealing his determination to fight for his place in the team and deliver a trophy to supporters at the end of the season.
“I am very pleased to be in this squad,” the Daily Star report him as saying.
“You need a big squad if you want to challenge for trophies and be strong in every competition.”
