Hertha Berlin midfielder Kevin-Prince Boateng is thinking about a move to Tottenham.Kevin-Prince Boateng is thinking about a move to Tottenham Hotspur after Hertha Berlin accepted a bid for the midfielder.
The Germany Under 21 international was being courted by Sevilla, but the Uefa Cup winners have failed to meet Hertha's demands.
And Sevilla's signing of Seydou Keita appears to have cleared the path for Tottenham to swoop for the 20-year-old.
Boateng acknowledged talks had taken place with Sevilla, but he is now focused on agreeing a switch to White Hart Lane.
"We were quite advanced with Sevilla," Boateng told the Berliner Zeitung newspaper.
"I have heard that Keita is joining, so I don't know if that has any effect on me.
"The Premier League is actually my dream league and now I am thinking about Tottenham."
Hertha's general manager Dieter Hoeness has confirmed the club have accepted Spurs' offer ahead of the bid from Sevilla.
Hoeness said: "The offer from Sevilla never interested us.
"It was not enough, so we turned it down.
"We have accepted the offer from England, and now the club and the player must reach an agreement."
