Werder Bremen striker Max Kruse has revealed he is willing to listen to offers this summer.

Kruse is enjoying a fine season in Germany, scoring 11 goals and registering 13 assists across all competitions.

However, the 31-year-old is out of contract at the end of the season and Sport Bild claim Tottenham are interested in bringing him to the Premier League.

The publication also reports Spurs may have competition for his signature in the shape of Inter Milan.

Kruse said: “Of course there are things that I would listen to. You have to say that honestly.

“If it were to happen, I would have to deal with it.”

Champions League football is said to be an attractive option for Kruse.

Tottenham are currently third in the Premier League and competing in the quarter-finals of Europe’s top competition, where they will face Manchester City on Tuesday.

Inter Milan are also on course to secure Champions League again next season as they currently occupy third spot in Serie A.

Kruse, though, is still focused on the current campaign and has his sights set on a top-six finish with Werder Bremen.

He said: “We spent a lot of time discussing things during the winter break and working out what we could do better.

“You can’t pull it off in every game, but we’ve picked up important points and still haven’t lost in the Ruckrunde.

“Nevertheless, we’re still not satisfied and won’t be until we reach our targets.”

Tottenham, meanwhile, finally got to play in their majestic new home last night, some eight months later than originally planned.

And Mauricio Pochettino‘s side produced the perfect housewarming gift as they beat Crystal Palace 2-0.

Son Heung-min created a slice of history with the first competitive goal before Christian Eriksen added a second late on to help Spurs to a first win in six Premier League games.

It was a battle for the club to make it into their new home this season, amid a seemingly never-ending run of delays, and some people suggested they should have waited until next year to move in.

But boss Mauricio Pochettino was the biggest cheerleader for playing there as soon as possible and knows after just one game that it was the right decision.

He said: “That is our second day at the stadium for us and the players but it starts to feel like home.

“It is going to be such an important place for the future and of course I think we were right to move here.

“With all the risk, of course, but I think in football if you want to achieve important things you need to be brave and we were brave moving and starting to play this season.”
