He seems to be being pursued by the Lilywhites because of Ange.
According to reports, Tottenham Hotspur is willing to pay a “magician” player eight times his present salary to join Ange Postecoglou’s squad.
Spurs form under Postecoglou
Under Postecoglou, the north Londoners are off to one of their best starts to a season and their most successful since the 1960–1961 campaign. In fact, Spurs won the domestic double that season, sparking genuine elation at their dramatic turnaround in results after hiring new manager Daniel Levy from Celtic in June. Everyone was unprepared for the Australian.In recent media interviews, Postecoglou praised his players for wanting to alter the “destiny” of their team.
“I don’t believe it is appropriate to draw comparisons to previous season and discuss what transpired then. The athletes deserve all the credit for embracing what we are attempting.
“Apart from the football, which has been terrific, the resilience we have showed has been great. We are incredibly tight as a group, which you can see because not only are we winning games. On the field, the players are attempting to alter this club’s course because they want to.
Some experts have praised Tottenham’s explosive play, including a former Arsenal striker and Gunners icon who claimed that Postecoglou, who is “underrated,” has stunned everyone.
Ian Wright recently remarked, “It’s underrated,” in reference to Premier League productions.
“He is currently making an underappreciated effort. Huge admirers of Ange Postecoglou. He needs to start strong, many said from the beginning, in my memory. You want the players he has to perform well, win some games, and other things. However, I didn’t anticipate it to be there so quickly or in the grove it is today.
Even if the Postecoglou buzz is in full swing, there are still rumors that Tottenham may try to add players to their roster during the January transfer window. There have been rumors that new defensive options like Galatasaray defender Victor Nelsson, Juventus star Gleison Bremer, Bournemouth’s Lloyd Kelly, and Bayer Leverkusen star Edmond Tapsoba are being considered due to their lack of depth behind in-form center-back duo Cristian Romero and Micky van de Ven.
Ivan Toney of Brentford has been mooted as a possible replacement for star striker Harry Kane in 2024, and Postecogolou is allegedly interested in signing a partner for Dejan Kulusevski. There are connections between players like Kerem Akturkoglu of Galatasaray and Al-Ittihad’s Jota, according to a recent Turkish article.
Kerem Akturkoglu transfer update
With regard to the Akturkoglu deal, FotoSpor reports that Spurs may now be willing to pay eight times the midfielder’s current weekly wage of £5,000 so that he can join Postecoglou in north London. This comes after the “magician,” as described in the report, turned down a new contract offer from his present team. Akturkoglu might receive a Tottenham offer of about £40,000 per week, which would significantly improve his current conditions.
The 24-year-old has scored three goals and provided assists on four others in the Turkish Super Lig alone so far this season. He is currently teaming up with former Lilywhites defender Davinson Sanchez. Tottenham is not the only team that thinks highly of Akturkoglu, as West Ham may also think about giving the Turkish international a significant wage raise.
