Star wants club to accept ‘offer from Tottenham’, €25 million would get deal done
Galatasaray defender Victor Nelsson is keen on a move to Tottenham Hotspur this summer.
According to a report from Turkish outlet Hurriyet, the 24-year-old defender has urged his club to accept the ‘offer from Tottenham’. However, it appears that the proposal from Tottenham is below Galatasaray’s asking price of €25 million.
It remains to be seen whether the Turkish outfit are prepared to budge on their demands and let the player leave for the Premier League.
The Denmark international is determined to play in England next season and a move to Tottenham would be an exciting opportunity for him. He has proven himself in the Turkish league with Galatasaray and he will be hoping to showcase his abilities in the Premier League as well.
Meanwhile, Spurs need to bring in defensive reinforcements this summer after conceding 63 goals in the league last season. They have been linked with players like Edmond Tapsoba and Micky van de Ven as well.
Nelsson has the attributes to thrive in English football as well and he could prove to be a cheaper option compared to the other two players.
It remains to be seen whether Tottenham can get the deal done in the coming weeks.
The 24-year-old defender is still relatively young and he is likely to improve further with coaching and experience.
The report further states that the Turkish outfit are keeping tabs on Tottenham defender Davinson Sanchez as a potential replacement. The Colombian is valued at €12 million this summer.
