There have been concerns surrounding the form of captain and first-choice goalkeeper Hugo Lloris. While there have been some impressive displays recently, the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner has made some errors that has cost the team at times over the past couple of years. At 34, he is entering the twilight of his career and has just a year left on his contract.

As a result, Tottenham have been linked with replacements for the veteran goalkeeper, with the likes of Lille’s Mike Maignan and Sam Johnstone of West Bromwich Albion being mooted as a target.

Now, Cakir seems to have also registered on the radars of Tottenham. The report goes on to state that Trabzonspor have already received three offers for the 25-year-old, and while it doesn’t specify if one of those is from Spurs, it says that the club are ‘in line’ for his signing. A fee of €20m with a sell-on fee less than 25% would be enough to get the deal over the line.
