Spurs are said to have joined the race to sign Feyenood midfielder Orkan Kokcu this summer, with Jose Mourinho impressed with the youngster.
The Daily Mail reported yesterday that Spurs were now in the hunt to land Kokcu, potentially, ahead of local rivals Arsenal.
Kokcu has emerged as one of the top midfielder prospects in Europe in the last few seasons. He’s apparently available for less than £20m and Spurs are now said to be in the mix, with the Mail claiming contact has already been made.
Naturally, Spurs fans have been discussing the potential signing of Kokcu on social media, with Twitter awash with comments talking up a potential deal for the 20-year-old Turkish international.
Kokcu, who plays as a deep lying playmaker in the main for Feyenood, is certainly a talent. And with Spurs boss Mourinho looking to reshape his squad this summer, it seems some supporters would love to see Kokcu arrive.
Here, then, is how some Tottenham fans reacted on Twitter to the news of a potential deal for Orkan Kokcu.
Could be the next Eriksen maybe?

If he is good then it is fine but i just do not want another future potential star like Jack Clark, Sess, Stevie and gedson. We have spent almost 70MM on these players and none of them are near to our first team. We could have got one good dybala or bruno or dias with that money.
