Tottenham Hotspur have reportedly been given a price tag for Trabzonspor goalkeeper Ugurcan Cakir in the summer.

Spurs have been linked with the shot-stopped for the past month as the 23-year-old has shone in Turkey of late.

The Express claim that Tottenham, Liverpool, Everton, and Sevilla all sent scouts to watch the keeper play against Besiktas last weekend.

Spurs’ current first-choice shot-stopper is World Cup winning captain, Hugo Lloris, but the Frenchman is surely coming towards the end of his career at 33-years-old.

Paulo Gazzaniga has provided a competent back-up for Lloris when injured, although it remains unclear as to whether Mourinho and Levy are keen on him as a successor.

Trabzonspor club president, Ahmet Agaoglu, has now come out and put a price tag on Cakir’s head for any potential summer buyers.

He claimed that the club want between €20m and €25m for the player, but that figure could rise as high as €30m.

He said (Turkish Football): “Our transfer budget will be determined by who is sold at the end of the season.

“In my opinion, Ugurcan Cakir is one of the three best goalkeepers in Europe and a huge prospect for Turkish football.

“We want €20-25m. it could be as high as €30m for him, but of course, we also hope he stays.”
