According to reports, Spurs and Sevilla reportedly made an offer of about €20 million, but the Turkish champions rejected it on the request of manager Okan Buruk.

Tottenham ‘in talks’ to sign electric Champions League winger before Arsenal and West Ham

Tottenham have initiated contact with Turkish giants Galatasaray as they try to snare lively winger Kerem Akturkoglu before London rivals Arsenal and West Ham, according to a report.

Attacker Akturkoglu, 24, prefers to play on the left wing but can also fill in as a second striker when necessary. He originally made the free move to Galatasaray from fellow Turkish team 24 Erzincanspor in September 2020, and he is presently having a fantastic season.

In 16 games so far this season, Akturkoglu has already produced five goals and seven assists. That includes goals and assists in Galatasaray’s recent 3-2 Champions League triumph over Manchester United and assists in five straight Super Lig games.

After some solid play from Baris Yilmaz down the right flank, Akturkoglu easily finished past goalkeeper Andre Onana. After Galatasaray had pulled even at 2-2 thanks to that goal, Mauro Icardi, a striker, shocked Manchester United by scoring the game-winning goal.

Perhaps it is not shocking that since that game, Akturkoglu has been mentioned in connection with a move to England. Along with his Galatasaray teammates Victor Nelsson and Sacha Boey, the Turkey international was supported to be acquired by Tottenham on October 6. But four days later, it became clear that West Ham and Arsenal would rival Spurs for Akturkoglu.

An update on the transfer hunt has now been released by the Turkish publication Aksam. They claim that by starting negotiations for the potential signing of Akturkoglu, Spurs have jumped ahead of Arsenal and West Ham.

To persuade the player to transfer to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, Spurs have lately made touch with Galatasaray officials and asked to meet with the player and his agent. However, it’s not yet certain if Galatasaray will consent to the second meeting taking place.

The article continues by confirming that Arsenal is also vying for Akturkoglu, but it makes no mention of West Ham’s interest.

Galatasaray braced for Tottenham, Arsenal offers

Galatasaray is reportedly aiming to extend the player’s contract through 2026 in order to avoid a departure and preserve his transfer value, suggesting that they won’t just sit back and let the great leave.

Despite this, Akturkoglu may end up making the decision. Galatasaray might be compelled to explore offers if he pushes for a switch to the Prem and rejects the offer of a new contract. They won’t want him to perhaps ruin the atmosphere in the changing room.

In the event that that occurs, Spurs will be first in line to sign him.

However, if Akturkoglu decides to carry on with his fascinating growth at Galatasaray, clubs like Spurs and Arsenal would need to find substitute winger targets.

Not only are Spurs considering signing Akturkoglu as a left winger, but they are also considering reconnecting manager Ange Postecoglou with Jota, a former Celtic great.

An update on a possible takeover of Tottenham has also been made, as the North London club may humiliate one of its Premier League rivals.
