Tottenham Interested In Signing £17.5million Turkish Striker In January – Reports

Published

on

Tottenham Hotspur are keeping an eye on Besiktas striker Cenk Tosun, according to the latest reports from The Daily Mail. The report indicates that Mauricio Pochettino has sent his scouts to watch the striker in action ahead of making a move in the January transfer window.

It is being reported that Besiktas would demand a fee in the region of £17.5million for his signature. Spurs are not alone in the race for the player as Premier League rivals Newcastle United and Crystal Palace are also interested in Tosun.

Both Palace and Newcastle failed with late moves to sign him in the summer transfer window although it is not sure if they would return in January. The Super Lig outfit were initially looking to accept offers in the region of £12million earlier in the summer but his improved performances have led to them increasing their asking price.

The striker scored 27 goals last season to help Besiktas retain the title after signing for the club in 2014. It was with rivals Gaziantepspor in Turkey that he made his name where he scored 44 goals in 122 games.

He has scored 50 goals in his first three seasons at the club and started this season very positively, scoring 2 goals in 5 games.

Tosun might be an interesting prospect but why Spurs are interested in his services is intriguing. Pochettino offloaded Vincent Janssen in the summer but added Fernando Llorente on the deadline day as a backup for Harry Kane.

Having a strong squad to challenge on all fronts and making a concerted effort for the Premier League title is on top of Pochettino’s agenda but it remains to be seen if Tosun will be willing to swap Besiktas for Spurs where he would be a squad player initially.

Also, both Newcastle and Palace could be vying for his signature again the winter window. If they don’t and if Spurs get their man, it could be a very interesting signing!
