Nelsson has had an outstanding campaign at the heart of the Galatasaray backline and has even filled in as a midfielder on a few occasions.
His displays have allegedly caught the attention of Tottenham, with Sporx being the first to report that the Lilywhites ‘have offered’ €13m (£11.3m) for the 24-year-old.
However, the publication revealed that Galatasaray had turned down the offer and made it clear to the Premier League side that they would not be accepting a penny below the centre-back’s release clause.
The report added that Tottenham had not been put off by the request and are expected to try again for the Denmark international.
According to Skorer’s latest update, that has indeed now happened, with Spurs alleged to have informed the Turkish club that they are now ready to pay Nelsson’s €25m (£21.7m) releases clause.
Spurs Web Opinion
Turkish outlets are not the most reliable when it comes to transfer news, which is why I am sceptical about this claim.
Besides, one would not expect Tottenham to finalise any plans regarding transfer targets until they bring in a new head coach or director of football.
