Tottenham to compete with top-four rivals for £25 million-rated attacker

By Saikat -

Tottenham Hotspur are set to compete with Premier League rivals Manchester United and Liverpool for Baris Alper Yilmaz. 

As per Milliyet, the 24-year-old winger has caught the attention of the top clubs with his performances and it will be interesting to see if Spurs decide to make a move for him.

The Turkish winger will add some much-needed cutting edge to the final third, and he could help Spurs improve going forward. Yilmaz picked up seven goals and 12 assists in all competitions last season and he has the quality to succeed in English football.

Tottenham could certainly use more quality in the wide areas and it remains to be seen whether they can get the deal done. The reported €30 million asking price is certainly affordable for the North London club. However, the involvement of Liverpool and Manchester United could complicate matters. Both clubs have more financial resources compared to Tottenham and Liverpool will be able to offer him Champions League as well.

If Tottenham can provide him with game assurance, the 24-year-old could be attracted to the idea of joining them. He will want to play regularly at this stage of his career.

The Turkish international is unlikely to start regularly for Liverpool or Manchester United given the options already at their disposal .

Spurs were overly dependent on Son Heung-min for goals last season. They need to add more goals to the side and the Turkish international could certainly help in that regard. In addition to that, he will help create goalscoring opportunities for his teammates as well and share the creative burden with James Maddison.
