This week, Timo Werner joined Tottenham in a somewhat unexpected January transfer.
Last week, Werner’s connections to Tottenham appeared out of nowhere, and a few days later, he had signed a loan deal with the team.
Spurs needed an attacker to bolster their lineup while Heung-Min Son was out, so why did Werner join Spurs barely eighteen months after leaving the Premier League following a disastrous stint with Chelsea?
Speaking about Werner’s transfer, Raphael Honigstein of the Sky Sports Transfer Talk Podcast argues that he is doing it now in an attempt to keep his dreams of playing for Germany in the Euros alive.

In order to compete for Europe, Werner joined Spurs.
The reporter revealed his knowledge of Werner’s action.
Yes, but unless they really have to, international players are hesitant to relocate in January. Timo Werner needs to restart his career because, with the way things are going, he has no chance of making the Euros, which is why he is transferring in January, according to Honigstein.
Point to prove Wener wants to return to the German team, and Tottenham may benefit greatly from the fact that he has this kind of point to show.
In fact, working for a goal tends to bring out the best in football players, so Werner shouldn’t have any trouble staying motivated at Spurs as he tries his hardest to restart his international career.
It remains to be seen whether the attacker can force his way back into the Germany team, but the fact that Julian Nagelsmann is familiar with him from his time at RB Leipzig may lend credence to his argument.
From here, Werner’s journey to Euro 2024 begins.
