Trabzonspor have set an £8 million [€10 million] valuation for attacking midfielder Yusuf Yazici a source close to the club revealed to Turkish-Football.
The 20-year-old starlet has attracted widespread interest from across Turkey and Europe after a brilliant breakthrough season.
Yazici has directly been involved in 14 goals in 15 games this season – five goals and nine assists.
Trabzonspor have lost just one game in which Yazici has started this season.
Turkish-Football recently reported that Manchester United have been scouting the Turkish international.
Yazici’s agent Adem Cebeci has revealed that there has been interest from Europe but that it may be early for the Turkish international to leave just yet.
“There is a lot of interest but it may be a little early for Europe just yet,” Cebeci told Turkish sports newspaper Fanatik.
Meanwhile Turkish newspaper the Star reported that Lyon coach Claudio Caçapa was left impressed with a Trabzonspor star Yazici following the league game against Besiktas.
Yazici will be joint-managed by the agent of Mesut Ozil and Ilkay Gundogan, Dr Erkut Sogut.
“We do not want to leave things to chance, we want to plan his career to get him the best possibly future and as a result we will work under the management of Dr Erkut Sogut who knows the European leagues inside out,” Cebeci was quoted as saying by Fanatik.
Yazici recently signed a five-year deal with Trabzonspor and the Black Sea Storm have revealed that they will try to keep him no their books over the summer.
