According to a report by Turkish outlet Fanatik, Tottenham Hotspur are chasing Fenerbahce shot stopper Altay Bayindir alongside Ajax, Lille, Schalke and Werder Bremen – with Spurs having also been interested last year.
Bayindir, who has shone for the Turkish Super Lig giants this season, earning praise from former Premier League star Mesut Ozil (Twitter), is now reportedly attracting attention from Spurs again, perhaps as a potential heir for Hugo Lloris.
Tottenham re-join race for Bayandir
Indeed, Spurs have allegedly re-joined the race alongside four other European teams – coming after a 2020 Fanatik claim that Lilywhites boss Jose Mourinho gave his thumbs up over a move for the ace.
There have been calls in the media for Tottenham to start contemplating a successor for number one shot stopper Lloris (Alasdair Gold), who turned 34-years-old on Boxing Day, with Bayandir now linked as a candidate.
Transfer Tavern take
Lloris was badly exposed during Spurs’ most recent 3-0 loss to Manchester City, with the Frenchman failing to stop a tame Rodri spot kick and letting two efforts from Ilkay Gundogan through later in the game.
Bayandir, by comparison, has enjoyed a solid campaign on the continent – as evident by the mounting interest from several European clubs including Spurs.
Time will tell whether Bayandir does become Lloris’ replacement, but for just £17.4m, Levy could do far worse.
