“I have been asked personally by Jose Mourinho and Txiki Begiristain about Ianis Hagi”, Becali said. “They wanted to know about him and how he was getting on. There’s a lot of top people in European football who know all about Ianis.

“I happen to think Ianis is on a good plan at Rangers. I think Rangers will sign him because he is a player who has that little extra piece of creativity and skill. He will continue to get better if he signs for them I think.”

Tottenham have plenty of attackers in a similar mould to Hagi at the club, with the likes of Dele Alli, Son Heung-min, Steven Bergwijn and Lucas Moura all offering similar traits. However, Hagi is available for a bargain price and is still only 21.

Jack Clarke has struggled since joining from Leeds and with the English teen likely to leave on loan again, perhaps the signing of Hagi could replace what Spurs may have hoped for from the ex-Whites star. Tottenham fans have discussed Hagi on Twitter.
