Tottenham Hotspur round-up: Llorente to Turkey, Overmars optimistic and Aarons battle
Fernando Llorente has reportedly agreed terms with Galatasaray over a potential move to the Turkish giants. Turkish news source Star has reported that he is set to head to Istanbul in January.
The Turkish side will pay a fee of £904,000 for his services.
Llorente has barely featured for Tottenham this season and is considered one of the players they want to move on in order to do January business.
He has also been linked with a move back to former club Athletic Bilbao.
Ajax sporting director Marc Overmars has confirmed the club remain in contact with Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen.
The pair both came through the ranks in Amsterdam and have been linked with exits in recent times. The duo have confirmed a desire to one day return to Ajax in their respective careers.
Overmars told Ajax TV that nothing has been ‘promised’ but the club remains in contact. He cited the recent examples of Daley Blind and Dusan Tadic returning to the club as a reason to be optimistic about the pair.
Arsenal have joined the battle to sign Max Aarons from Norwich City. The talented full-back is a target for Tottenham Hotspur, with a £15 million move mooted.
Any January deal would need to see Aarons loaned back to Norwich, who are pushing for promotion from the Championship, as reported by The Mirror.
