Report: Conte sent Spurs scouts to Istanbul before the season closed

By Eddie Razo -

Tottenham Hotspur has already addressed the left wing-back position with the arrival of Ivan Perišić this summer on a free transfer from Inter Milan to reunite with manager Antonio Conte. Despite the addition, Besiktas Ridvan Yilmaz is a name connected to Spurs.

According to Fanatik Tottenham Hotspur has ramped up its efforts to sign Besiktas left-back. The report states that Yilmaz has a proposed move to Eintracht Frankfurt; however, it collapsed.

The 21-year-old has one more year left on his deal, and it seems the Turkish club wants to garner a fee for the defender rather than letting him go on a free transfer next year.

Last season, the Turkey international made 27 appearances in the Süper Lig, scoring three goals and recording four assists. When it comes to a possible fee the Premier League side will have to pay for Yilmaz this summer window, Transfermarkt puts the player’s value at £6 million.
