Tottenham eye summer move for wonderkid Omur

According to Turkish media outlet Habertuk, Tottenham Hotspur want to beat Leicester City to the signature of Trabzonspor teenager Abdulkadir Omur this summer.

What’s the story?

Previously linked with Arsenal, Omur is an 18-year-old midfielder who currently plays his football for Turkish giants Trabzonspor.

He is widely regarded as one of the best young talents in European football, and according to Habertuk, both Tottenham and Leicester want to sign him this summer.

It is understood that Trabzonspor currently value Omur in the region of £20m, but there is every chance that figure could rise when considering the interest surrounding him.

Tottenham would certainly fancy their chances of winning any race that might occur with Leicester, but Arsenal could well reignite their interest in the Turkey Under-19 international.

How good can Omur become?

Omur, who will turn 19 later this month, has scored four times and registered six assists in 39 appearances in all competitions for Trabzonspor.

Last season, the teenager managed three goals and six assists in 32 appearances, which is some going for a player of 18 operating at that sort of level.

Omur has actually been with Trabzonspor since 2011, and was called into the first team in early 2016 due to his incredible performances in the youth set-up.

He is also a three-time Turkey Under-19 international, and it will surely not be too long before the midfielder earns his first senior cap for his nation.

Omur, who is a right midfielder by trade, possesses impressive pace and ability on the ball. However, it is the youngster’s intelligence on the field that has drawn the biggest attention.

The Turk is valued at £7.2m by transfermarkt.co.uk, but it is understood that Trabzonspor are currently demanding £20m, which would be a small price to pay for a player who is certainly capable of becoming a star on the European stage.
