Spurs target Zeki Celik after clinching Hojbjerg signing

Tottenham want Lille right-back Zeki Celik after clinching a deal for Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, the Telegraph reports.

Spurs have agreed a fee with Southampton for ex-Bayern Munich midfielder Hojbjerg, 24.

Kyle Walker-Peters will go the other way in a separate deal after a successful loan spell with the Saints.

With Hojbjerg on his way to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, Jose Mourinho will focus on Celik, Lille’s talented 23-year-old full-back.

The Turkish international was a key player in the LOSC side that finished fourth in the 2019-20 Ligue 1 season.

And he is top of Mourinho’s list of targets to reinforce Spurs’ right-back position this summer.

Lille could sell Celik for around £18m (€19.9m), an affordable price for Tottenham with their limited budget.

However, the London club need to sell before adding another big money buy, with Serge Aurier and Juan Foyth the main candidates to go.

AC Milan are in talks with Spurs for Aurier, while Argentine international Foyth has been linked with Leeds United.
