Calhanoglu would fit into Tottenham Hotspur’s young squad

Tottenham Hotspur are considering a move for Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Hakan Calhanoglu, according to Bild.

What’s the story?

The German publication has claimed that Calhanoglu is open to joining either a club in England or Italy.

It is believed that Tottenham, as well as Everton, are keeping tabs on the midfielder, who recently finished a four-match ban.

The 23-year-old was banned from playing from February onwards after breaching his contract, but before that, he scored nine goals in 26 appearances.

The Turkey international has spent his entire career in Germany, playing for Karlsruher and Hamburg before joining Leverkusen in 2014.

Is he right for Tottenham?

Despite the fact that he missed the majority of the second half of the season, Calhanoglu has the ability to slot into Mauricio Pochettino’s team.

The Argentine boss has managed to shape a young squad into title contenders, and adding another talented member to the pack is a favourable move.

Calhanoglu is versatile in that he can play in the middle or on the flanks, and he is widely known for his strength on set pieces.

The Turk has become quite the free-kick specialist, which will add another string to Tottenham’s bow.

If they can get the midfielder at a reasonable price, he is worth bringing into the team, particularly if Pochettino gets rid of some of the deadwood.
