Tottenham still interested in signing Turkish international according to his ex-manager



Tottenham remain keen on Lille’s Zeki Celik according to former manager

Speaking to Ajansspor (h/t, Yalcin Kosukavak, who managed Turkish defender Zeki Celik at Istanbulspor, has claimed that Tottenham Hotspur remain interested in signing him this summer.

The 23-year-old joined Lille from Turkish outfit Istanbulspor in the summer of 2018. Till date, he has featured 73 times for the French club, scoring one goal and setting up eight more.

Zeki Celik has been linked with Tottenham

In what was a curtailed 2019/20 campaign in France due to the pandemic, Celik featured 32 times across all competitions, contributing with three assists. He has featured five times in the new season, but is yet to score or assist a goal.

Zeki Celik has been linked with Tottenham for quite some time now. And now, his former manager at Istanbulspor has claimed that the North Londoners remain interested in the 15-time capped Turkish international. (h/t

“When I spoke to Mehmet Zeki, he said Sevilla and Tottenham wanted him. For Mehmet Zeki, Lille has a bond fee. If this fee is paid, Mehmet Zeki can leave Lille.”

Tottenham’s right-back slot had been a problem heading into the summer. But, the club brought in Matt Doherty to address the issue. The former Wolves man has given a fairly good account of himself in the opening stages of the season.

However, there are question marks over the future of Serge Aurier. So, bringing in a cover for the position could become necessary, if the Ivorian leaves.

Nevertheless, a new right-back is not the priority for Tottenham heading into the final few days of the transfer window. So, a move for Celik, despite his former manager’s claims, is unlikely to see the light of day this summer.
