Tottenham scouting 24-year-old Man United target with 19-G/A last season

By Saikat -

Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United have been scouting Galatasaray. winger Barış Alper Yılmaz at Euro 2024.

Ange Postecoglou had a decent first season at Tottenham but in order to help them take the next step, he wants to complete a major overhaul at the club.

While the focus is on reinforcing almost every position on the pitch, the priority is to add more firepower to their attack. They are on the lookout for players who can add something different to their frontline and according to Uğur Karakullukçu, Tottenham are scouting Galatasaray attacker Barış Alper Yılmaz.

The Turkish sports commentator said via Habersarikirmizi: “Manchester United and Tottenham watched Barış Alper in the Czech Republic – Turkey match. I confirmed it. If he continues like this, it looks like they will continue to watch.”

Yilmaz contributed towards 19 goals (7 goals, 12 assists) in the 2023/24 season and he seems to have carried his sensational form into Euro 2024. He has played every minute of Turkiye’s campaign so far and has helped them secure a place in the knockout stage.

The 24-year-old might not have found the back of the net yet but his general play has been exceptional and clubs have been keeping a close eye on him. Manchester United are one of the clubs who are interested in his services as they look to reinforce their flanks after a poor season last time out.

But, Tottenham have also entered the race and their representatives were present in the stands to watch him in action against Czechia. If he continues to perform at similar levels, Spurs are expected to continue monitoring him as they look for someone who can bolster their attack.

Yılmaz prefers playing on the right flank but he is someone who can feature anywhere in attack as even as a full-back if needed. Postecoglou would love to have someone as versatile as the Turkish international in his squad. However, it is still early stages and no moves have been made so far.
