Tottenham Hotspur are close to signing Fenerbahce starlet Eljif Elmas, according to reports in Turkey.
Elmas has made 34 appearances across all competitions so far this season, scoring one goal from central midfield.
The 19-year-old has previously been linked with a number of top European clubs including Manchester City after emerging as one of the best young players in the Turkish Super Lig.
And according to Turkish outlet SuperHaber (as relayed by Sports Mole), Elmas is closing in on a move to Spurs.
It is believed £17 million could be enough to complete a deal for the teenager, who usually sits in front of the back four – which explains his lack of goals.
Tottenham are likely to sign at least one new central midfielder this summer following Mousa Dembele’s exit in the January transfer window.
Victor Wanyama is also said to be on his way out of the club at the end of the season, so Spurs may be in the market for multiple players in that position.
Elmas sounds promising but Tottenham fans will be hoping for a more experienced signing to come in alongside him.
