Agent refuses to rule out exit for Tottenham target Mehmet Topal

Fenerbahce midfielder Mehmet Topal has reached an agreement-in-principle with Tottenham according to the Fanatik sports newspaper.

Topal’s agent Batur Altiparmak is however, remaining coy over the latest transfer rumour and refused to rule out the possibility that he may leave.

Altiparmak told “Everybody writes something different every other day so I am not going to respond to every transfer rumour.

“Let us wait until the end of the season and see what happens.” 

Spurs are able to enter direct talks with Turkish international midfielder as he has under six-months remaining on his current contract.

Fenerbahce have yet to renew terms with Topal but are keen on keeping him on at the club next season.

Tottenham were also linked with Topal last summer and were reported to have made a €6 million bid which the Yellow Canaries rejected.

Topal is one of the few players to have won the league title with both Galatasaray and Fenerbahce. The experienced midfielder also has experience playing for Valencia and is a regular in the Turkish national team setup.

Nicknamed the ‘spider’ for his ability to win back the ball using his long legs Topal is rumoured to be considering a move abroad after suffering two attempts at his life.

The first armed attack occurred when the Fenerbahçe team was making its way toward Trabzon’s airport following a 5-1 Süper Lig victory at nearby Çaykur Rizespor.

The second incident involved his car being shot at by an armed gunman following a training session at the start of the season.

Topal has two goals and three assists in 45 appearances for the Yellow Canaries this season.
