Tottenham interested in €30m-rated Galatasaray winger Baris Alper Yilmaz

Tottenham Hotspur are among a number of clubs interested in Galatasaray winger Baris Alper Yilmaz, according to Turkish news outlet Haber3.

The north Londoners are in the market for forwards to strengthen their attacking ranks, and Yilmaz has emerged as a concrete target.

However, they’re not alone in the race for the 24-year-old. Manchester United and Brighton & Hove Albion have also been credited with an interest in the winger.

Yilmaz has three years left on his contract with Gala, but he could be on his way to the Premier League this summer, with the aforementioned trio closely keeping an eye on the winger.

Yilmaz has become a highly sought-after target after an impressive 2023/24 season with Gala. The Turkiye international bagged seven goals and 12 assists in 55 appearances across all competitions.

He notched six goals and six assists in the league, creating ten big chances while averaging 1.2 key passes per 90 minutes.

His goal contributions were key to Gala’s title triumph last term, and he has been crucial for the Turkish national team at the ongoing European Championship in Germany.

With several clubs set to compete for his signature this summer, Gala have set a €30 million (£25.5m) asking price for the winger, who was described as a ‘very special‘ player by Gaziantep manager Selcuk Inan.

Yilmaz is valued at £14.5m on Transfermarkt, but Gala could demand double that price if he continues to impress at the Euros.

Yilmaz could be an excellent addition for Spurs. While he is predominantly deployed on the right wing, the right-footed winger is also comfortable on the left, and his versatility would come in handy for Ange Postecoglou’s side.

Yilmaz is solely focused on the ongoing Euros and is set to be named in the starting line-up when Turkiye take on Austria in a delicately poised round of 16 clash.

His future will be decided after the tournament, although Tottenham must move fast to sign him, with other Premier League teams circling with serious interest.

Meanwhile, Spurs are on the cusp of completing a deal to sign highly-rated Leeds United midfielder Archie Gray.
