Spurs join Sheffield United in race for Fenerbahce goalkeeper

Tottenham Hotspur have joined Sheffield United in the chase to sign Fenerbahce goalkeeper Altay Bayindir, per Turkish Football.

What’s the word?

Spurs are said to have approached the Turkish club over a possible deal, as have their Premier League rivals and a number of Bundesliga sides.

The report states that both Spurs and the Blades made an enquiry when Damien Comolli was still the Sporting Director, before he left the club at the end of January.

Comolli, of course, worked with Spurs earlier in his career, beginning in 2005, helping the club sign the likes of Dimitar Berbatov and Luka Modric during his tenure at White Hart Lane, which ended in 2008.

How much did Spurs pay to sign Hugo Lloris?

Rapid growth

Bayindir has some impressive statistics at the age of 21.

That is practically an infant for a goalkeeper, but he is already playing regularly for Fener.

He has made 22 appearances in total for the club, having joined them from Ankaragucu in the summer, and has also been called up to the senior Turkey squad, sitting on the bench for the 2-0 win over Andorra in Euro 2020 qualifying.

Will Spurs finish in the top four?





This would be an investment in potential, then, with Transfermarkt valuing him at £5.4m.

Spurs do have Hugo Lloris as their current No.1, with Paulo Gazzaniga as his back-up; bringing in a youthful presence behind that pair would be a shrewd move, particularly if Bayindir can keep growing and improving at his current rate.

Meanwhile, Spurs have missed out on an absolute baller!
