#2 Kevin Wimmer

Austria v Albania - International Friendly
Wimmer couldn't find his feet Tottenham

When Kevin Wimmer was bought from Koln in the summer of 2015, he filled the hearts of the fans with hope and expectations. The Austrian came off the back of a brilliant season in Germany after being promoted to the first team of Koln.

He took to first-team football like a duck takes to water, establishing himself as the indispensable starter at the club. The former Espanyol tactician saw potential in him and sanctioned a deal for the then 22-year-old.

However, he couldn’t replicate the type of performances that he displayed in Germany. After not taking the chances given to him by Pochettino – limited as they might be – he was sold to Stoke for a fee of around €20 million, a €13 million profit for a player that they didn’t really need after the acquisition of Juan Foyth and Davinson Sanchez.

Hence, an 8/10.
