On October 9th, Turkish journalist Haldun Domaç said West Ham United clearly want to sign Kerem Aktürkoğlu. He made this claim days after Fotospor stated that Tottenham Hotspur will send scouts to watch the Galatasaray star in action against Bayern Munich later this month.

Three days ago, Akşam reported Spurs have initiated contact with Galatasaray to request for a meeting with the winger.

Aktürkoğlu’s deal expires in 2026 and Fotospor have a report discussing his contract situation, in which they mention Tottenham and West Ham.

It’s claimed the Turkey international currently earns €300,000 per year, and he and his agent, Erkut Söğüt, hasn’t listened to the renewal offer proposed by the Istanbul club.

The report states the Turkish champions offered 30m TL [€1m] per year but this didn’t please Aktürkoğlu, who has ‘made his decision’ on not renewing his contract at the Istanbul club.

Fotospor then add English clubs are on the hunt for the attacker and both Spurs and the Hammers are named.

They state that if the Premier League duo were to make offers for the Galatasaray player, there’s a possibility he could earn at least around €2-2.25m per year. This is more than double what the Istanbul club have currently offered.

Aktürkoğlu has managed five goals and seven assists from 17 games this season.
