Lazio in confirmed Yilmaz talks

Turkish side Trabzonspor have announced that Lazio, Fulham and Tottenham made official bids for striker Burak Yilmaz.

The 26-year-old Turkish international has also been linked with the likes of Manchester United, Arsenal and West Ham.

“We have a roadmap for this and we want this done,” said Trabzonspor President Sadri Sener.

“Lazio, Tottenham and Fulham want him and we shall now see.”

It had been reported that Lazio made an offer worth €7m plus a contract worth €2.5m per season.

Italian media suggest Tottenham are making a considerably higher proposal in terms of wages, but want an agreement as quickly as possible.

Yilmaz also confirmed he believes his time at Trabzonspor has come to an end.

“I dream of a big European club. I have talked with the technical staff and president Sener and I told them that my dream is to grow as a player.

“We talked for a long time and everything was calm, like a child turning to his father. We will soon know my future and I hope it will be a good club where I play, but I do say thanks to everyone at Trabzonspor.”
