The Evening Standard have reported that Tottenham, Arsenal and Manchester United have now all joined the race to sign Lille right-back, Zeki Celik.

Of course, the 24-year-old right-backs comes into this summer transfer market off the back of a Ligue 1 win with Lille, beating PSG to the French title.

However, the full-back has just two years remaining on his current contract and is apparently expected to move clubs this summer.

Spurs fans will be able to get a close look at Celik during the European Championships as he will be representing Turkey.

However, if the Evening Standard are to be believed, plenty of clubs will be looking at Celik over the next month, including Spurs, Arsenal, Man United, Inter Milan and Norwich City.

Tottenham struggled at right-back this season, with Serge Aurier being inconsistent, Matt Doherty finding it hard to adapt to his new club and Japhet Tanganga suffering another bad injury.

With Celik said to be rated at around £13m, Spurs could well be on the look out for a bargain this summer.
