Trabzonspor vice president Hayrettin Hacisalihoglu has spoken to Trabzon based newspaper Taka about Abdulkadir Omur.
Earlier this week we covered reports from the Turkish press that Leicester City have tabled a £20m offer to sign the Turkish winger, but Hacisalihoglu said the club is calm about the situation.
Speaking to Taka Hacisalihoglu was asked about the reported bid from Leicester City: “Abdulkadir is one of our own. He’s very valuable to us because he’s born and bred at Trabzon.
“Yes, we are hearing some offers but they are not official right now. I can confirm that these are the prices that Turkey has never seen. If this kind of offer arrives it’s not only our responsibility as a club’s board. We’ll ask the club’s council board and make a decision.”
It’s reported in Turkey Trabzonspor don’t want to sell Omur despite the offer form Leicester City, but it could prove tempting as the Turkish club are struggling financially.
The youngster has already been dubbed the ‘Turkish Messi’, even though he’s played just one season in the top flight, and he’s also been linked with Tottenham Hotspur.
It seems Trabzonspor will have a decision to make about the 18 year old this summer given offers are expected to come in.
