Tottenham are on red alert as former target Max Kruse continues to stall over a new contract at Werder Bremen, reports claim.
The 31-year-old will become a free agent at the end of the season if he fails to agree a new deal with the Bundesliga club.
And according to Sky in Germany, the north Londoners are set to battle Inter Milan for Kruse’s signature.

With his current deal set to expire at the end of the season, Kruse is free to talk to clubs around Europe and sign a pre-contract agreement.
Tottenham’s transfer policy rarely sees them opt for players over 30, but with Kruse potentially available for free, he represents a tempting option.
