Report: Spurs ‘made reservations’ to scout 25-year-old this weekend 

Turkish outlet Milliyet have revealed that ahead of Galatasaray’s clash against Besiktas, Tottenham Hotspur planned to send scouts to watch Kerem Akturkoglu in action.

Akturkoglu has gone from strength to strength over the last couple of years and following the winger’s impressive start to the season, it has emerged that Spurs are now keeping close tabs on him.

It was reported by Fotomac at the start of the month that the pacey wide-man’s displays had caught the attention of the North London club, who were said to be keeping a close eye on him ahead of the January window.

Last week Fotospor also credited both Spurs and West Ham with an interest in Akturkoglu and suggested that the player has no intention of signing a new contract at Galatasaray.
