Son Heung-min’s new best friend has been outlined.
“Tottenham Hotspur will offer an eight-fold increase in weekly wages to bring in Kerem Akhturkolu (24, Galatasaray) in the January transfer window next year,”토스카지노 Turkiye’s Fotospor reported on Sunday (Feb. 22).
Tottenham have exceeded expectations this season. After eight games in the league, they have six wins, two draws, and 20 points, putting them in a three-way tie at the top of the table with Arsenal and Manchester City.
That’s not to say they haven’t had their share of disappointments. Outside of Son Heung-min, the strikers have been underwhelming. While Heung-min is leading the way with six goals, he hasn’t scored a single goal.
It’s widely expected that the team will be looking to bolster their forward line in the January transfer window. Jota, Santiago Jimenez and Jonathan David have already been linked with a move to Spurs.
However, Akhturkolu has emerged as a potential target for Spurs. Akhturkolu caught the eye of Tottenham after his stellar performances for the Galatasaray and Turkkiye national teams.
The numbers speak for themselves. He’s scored five goals and provided seven assists in 16 games this season, proving that he has a lot of potential for the future.
Tottenham’s interest in Akhturkolu is serious. According to the report, Spurs are planning to lure Akhturkolu with an offer that would increase his weekly wages eightfold, from £5,000 to £40,000 ($8.22 million).
It is believed to be a move conscious of rival clubs. As well as Spurs, Aston Villa, Brighton, West Ham, Everton, and Nottingham Forest are also keeping tabs on Akhturkolu.
It’s not unlikely that a deal to Tottenham will go through. “A transfer fee of £20 million would be enough to convince Galatasaray to sell him,” according to Potospor.
