If Sabah on Monday are to be believed, then Tottenham ended up leaving a trip to Turkey with a nice surprise in their back pocket.
That’s a positive scout report of Baris Alper Yilmaz, currently shining at Galatasaray, whom Spurs were watching because they were ‘preparing a report’ for Tanguy Ndombele.
The outlet explain that while putting together something for Tottenham about their loanee, the performance of the 23-year-old winger caught the attention of scouts.
However, Galatasaray will not let him go for cheap, as they expect a fee of ‘over €20m’ to be presented if a team, whether it be Tottenham or someone else, want to sign him.
Just to show how highly-rated Yilmaz is at Galatasaray, Sabah also include two opinions from journalists in their article.
One of them, Ali Gultiken, describes the forward as a ‘game changer’, who has undergone ‘tremendous development’ and can perform wherever he plays, having featured as left-back, right-back, right winger and left winger.
Just something to keep in mind.
