Tottenham might lose out on Ridvan Yilmaz, a youngster from the Besiktas, according to Bundesliga side Eintracht Frankfurt.
According to Sport1, the UEFA Europa League champions have begun negotiations to sign the 21-year-old fullback; however, discussions are already on hold as Frankfurt is unable to agree on a fee with Besiktas to sign Yilmaz, who claims to value the defender at 8.5 million.
Yilmaz is not the only player interested in joining Frankfurt, though. Tottenham is believed to be interested in signing the versatile defender, with Antonio Conte attempting to sign the left-back as part of his summer revamp of the north London outfit, which currently has four new players.
Yilmaz's greatest ambition, according to the player, is to play for Tottenham in the Premier League, with the Besiktas academy graduate hoping to one day become a regular in England's top division after making a name for himself in the Turkish Super Lig.
Yilmaz was a regular for Besiktas last season as the Black Eagles finished a dismal sixth in the league, with their star defender now looking for a move this summer, amid interest from Tottenham and now Frankfurt, who are apparently struggling to sign the youngster.
Tottenham must defeat Frankfurt in order to sign Yilmaz.
Yilmaz is a highly sought after player with two top clubs in Frankfurt and Tottenham keen on signing the talented defender, yet with the German club currently losing ground in the hunt to sign the 21-year-old, Spurs must exploit this opportunity to grab the fullbacks' signature in the coming days.
Spurs may need a second wingback on the left, and Yilmaz may be an exceptional fit for Conte given his talent, potential, and experience, as well as a fairly inexpensive price tag of just 8.5 million, which may decrease in the coming weeks.
