Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly set to send a delegation to negotiate for the Galatasaray winger Bruma after the derby game against Fenerbahce.
According to Turkish outlet Aksam, Mauricio Pochettino’s spies have already scouted the player six times this season, and the positive reports mean they’re going for him now.
Galatasaray would say no to all offers below €25m, so the Tottenham officials should already know they won’t get a cheap deal.
With four goals and three assists this season, the player has been excelling in the Turkish league and receiving much attention from abroad.
Despite being born in Guinea-Bissau, Bruma has a Portuguese nationality and his steps are much followed by the local media.
During the summer, many reports linked him to the Premier League, including an alleged €17m offer from West Brom.
O Jogo said Galatasaray wanted at least €20m for the player at the time, but the claim price fluctuated down to €10m and back again, so it’s clear that there’s uncertainty.
Something around €20m to €25m is likely to be the price now. Turkish transfer reporting, like most around Europe, is often excitable but it’s fair to say they’re usually a step ahead on possible transfers from the country to the Premier League.
