According to Super Haber, Tottenham Hotspur could sign Fenerbahce midfielder Eljif Elmas during this summer’s transfer window.
The 19-year-old, who largely operates in central midfield, has scored once in 34 appearances for his Turkish club during the 2018-19 campaign.
Tottenham are widely expected to improve their midfield this summer with Mousa Dembele leaving for China in January and Victor Wanyama struggling for game time this season – forcing Mauricio Pochettino to rely on Harry Winks and Moussa Sissoko for much of the campaign.
The Premier League club’s fans have been on social media reacting to the news and it would be fair to say that not too many are best pleased with the report.

Prefer Milinkovic-Savic, please.

Just hoping it’s cause Poch wants him, and not because Levy thinks he is a cheaper version of someone like Milinkovic-Savic. Everyone remembers when we wanted Musacchio and got Fazio instead.
