According to reports from Turkey, Tottenham Hotspur have enquired about the potential summer signing of Trabzonspor goalkeeper Ugurcan Cakir.
The report by Fotospor (via Sport Witness) claimed that all three of Borussia Dortmund, Atalanta and PSV have already submitted offers for the 25-year-old. However, each of those offers – which are reported to be around €20m (£17m) plus a sell-on fee – was rejected by the Super Lig club.
It is also claimed that Tottenham have contacted Trabzonspor regarding the sale of the £14.4m-rated Turkey international, but the north London side are yet to submit a formal offer for Cakir.
Would Cakir be a good signing for Spurs?
Transfer Tavern Take
With Tottenham’s current number one Hugo Lloris being heavily linked with a summer departure, it is not overly surprising to discover that Spurs are have made an enquiry about the availability of a potential replacement for the Frenchman.
With Cakir having kept an impressive 12 clean sheets over his 32 Super Lig appearances for Trabzonspor so far this season, as well as Leicester City’s head of recruitment Lee Congerton claiming that the 25-year-old is “one of the best goalkeepers I have seen in my life“, it would certainly seem as if the Turkey international is indeed a worthy candidate to take over from Lloris this summer.
