Turkey take on Sweden at the Antalya stadium as part of their European Championship preparations.

Fatih Terim has a full-strength squad available to him and is likely to make use of Barcelona star Arda Turan but Bayer Leverkusen playmaker Hakan Calhanoglu could be rested.

Terim has been experimenting with Mainz 05 forward Yunus Malli as a forward in training and could start with the Spurs target upfront.

German sports newspaper Sport Bild has reported that Tottenham are interested in signing the Turkish international who has had an excellent season so far.

Spurs have been keeping close tabs on Malli sending scouts on at least two occasions to watch the in-form attacking midfielder.
