According to Turkish publication Aksam, Tottenham Hotspur are expected to push ahead with a move for Galatasaray winger Kerem Akturkoglu this summer.

Akturkoglu’s performances in the Super Lig over the last two seasons have catapulted him into the limelight.

The winger has amassed 11 goals and nine assists across all competitions this season (Transfermarkt) and has also become an important part of the Turkish national side. 

Aksam claim the 23-year-old’s days at Galatasaray are numbered, with Spurs and Arsenal both sending scouts to run the rule over the player this season.

It is asserted that both North London clubs will knock on Galatasaray’s door for the wide-man when the transfer window reopens.

In addition, Akturkoglu is also said to be on the radars of Lyon, Atletico Madrid and Wolfsburg, with the report adding that the number of suitors are ‘increasing day by day’.

It is revealed that Galatasaray have already knocked back an offer of €15m (£12.4m) from Wolfsburg for the player as they value him at more than €20m (£16.6m).

Spurs Web Opinion

Conte will certainly want to add to his forward line in the summer and one would expect Bergwijn to depart. However, Spurs fans should take the speculation linking us to Akturkoglu with a pinch of salt as Turkish outlets are not the most reliable when it comes to transfer news.
