Sevilla joins Tottenham in race to sign Turkish international

The La Liga giants Sevilla have joined Tottenham in the race to sign Mehmet Topal according to the Turkish sports paper Fotospor.

The report states that Topal’s former manager Unay Emery who now manages Sevilla, is trying to convince the Turkish international to make the move back to Spain.

Topal has reached an agreement-in-principle with Tottenham according to the Fanatik sports newspaper. The 30-year-old’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.” 

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

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