Three reasons Southampton should hijack Tottenham’s move for Yusuf Yazici

By | December 5, 2017

According to Turkish media outlet Sporx, Tottenham Hotspur are ready to launch an offer to try and bring Trabzonspor attacking midfielder Yusuf Yazici to the club next summer.


The 20-year-old has been an impressive performer for the Turkish outfit since making his debut in the 2015/16 campaign, and now his standout displays have caught the attentions of Spurs and boss Mauricio Pochettino.

Sporx says that the north London side have been scouting the playmaker for a while now, and they could finally make their move for the Turkey international at the end of the season after being long-term admirers of his showings on the pitch.

Meanwhile, Southampton manager Mauricio Pellegrino may well be looking to add to his side’s attacking options during the January transfer window and next summer with his team scoring just 15 goals in their 15 Premier League matches this term, and bringing the attacking midfielder to St Mary’s could prove to be a shrewd move.
