Sevilla make bid for Ugurcan Cakir amidst Tottenham Hotspur interest
According to VOLE’s Youtube channel, as quoted by SportWitness (h/t Leicester Mercury), La Liga side Sevilla has made a bid of €20million for Ugurcan Cakir, who has also drawn interest from Tottenham Hotspur.
The Turkish international has been one of the most impressive keepers in the Turkish league. Interest in the player is high, with the likes of Leicester City, Liverpool, and Everton keen.
The 24-year-old’s contract runs until 2024, giving Trabzonspor enough leeway in negotiations. Leicester are unlikely to bid for the player given their options in goal. In spite of not getting any younger, Kasper Schmeichel is among the league’s best. He also has an able deputy in former Liverpool starlet Danny Ward.
Speaking about the topic, Ali Ece who works for Turkey’s top sports channel NTV revealed that Sevilla has been the most serious about securing the player. He went on to add that he is unsure of what the Turkish club’s intentions are.
“I also heard and confirmed that Leicester City and Tottenham are interested in signing him.”
Of all the clubs in the fray, it can be argued that it is Tottenham who are in need of a new keeper. Liverpool have arguably the world’s best keeper in their ranks while Everton have the English national team keeper in between the sticks.
Hugo Lloris has had a long and storied career in North London. However, age has finally caught up with him. His backup, Paulo Gazzaniga, has hardly been convincing when given the opportunity. The club will do well to bring in a new keeper as soon as possible.
Whether it is Cakir or not remains to be seen.
