Tottenham Ready To Bid For Winger With Daniel Levy Prepared To Use Former Keeper To Negotiate A Deal

Tottenham have been showing a lot of interest in Galatasaray winger Bruma for quite a while now. It appears that this January transfer window may be the best time to sign the 22-year-old. He reportedly became a contract rebel at the Turkish club. He has been unwilling to put pen to paper on a new contract despite his existing deal coming to a close in the summer of 2018. It has been one of the primary reasons behind Spurs showing a lot of interest in the player, but he has also been quite excellent on the pitch with five goals and five assists in 16 appearances this season.

Now, though, he has performed a remarkable U-turn by claiming that he is ready to sign a contract with Galatasaray as long as a great deal is offered on the table. At the same time, Bruma also said that he would not rule out considering offers from clubs in abroad if it was a great deal for him and the club. As quoted by Sport Witness, he said:

“I’ll gladly accept it, of course. (the new contract). I’m very happy at Galatasaray, I’m enjoying every single moment here. It’s of course flattering when you have been linked with a move to abroad but I am currently under contract at Galatasaray and I’ll honour it. If the club is ready to offer me a new deal, I’ll gladly accept it.”

Tottenham are so keen on strengthening the squad in January that they are reportedly going full on with their interest in Bruma. Signing the player before he signs a new contract with the Turkish club will be essential to get him on a bargain. Chairman Daniel Levy is someone who loves bargains, and he is reportedly ready to use former goalkeeper Brad Friedel as a representative for the club in the transfer negotiations (via Turkish outlet Fotomac). Friedel played for Galatasaray more than two decades ago in the 1995-96 season.

Even though he represented the club in only 30 matches, Spurs believe that his presence will help them gain a foothold in the deal. Spurs will have to fight off competition from several clubs across European football in order to sign Bruma. Aware of this competition, they have decided to seek the services of Friedel, who has remained at the club since retiring from football a few years ago. It remains to be seen if the presence of Friedel, who last played for Galatasaray more than two decades ago, will make an impact.

Bruma has been with Galatasaray since 2013 and it is expected that the club will not sell him for anything less than € 20 million. He was initially signed from Sporting Lisbon for €10 million.

Spurs are very keen on strengthening the squad in order to maintain the title challenge until the end of the season. Spurs’ title challenge was rekindled after a 2-0 win over table leaders Chelsea at White Hart Lane. It was an amazing performance from the North London outfit, who are now seven points behind Chelsea.
