Inter and Atletico Madrid have made a move for Lille right-back Mehmet Zeki Celik a source close to the Turkey international star revealed to Turkish-Football.

Atleti and Inter have made an enquiry for Celik and contacted his representatives regarding a summer move.

Both sides closely scouted the full-back last season.

Lille are keen on keeping Celik on for another season and have another three-years remaining on his contract but they would listen to offers for the right price.

Celik joined the Ligue 1 side on a €2.5m [Transfermarkt] deal from Istanbulspor in the Turkish second tier.

The 22-year-old enjoyed a meteoric rise going from playing TFF 1. Lig football to establishing himself a first-team star at Lille.

Celik provided five assists and one goal in 34 appearances for Lille in his debut Ligue 1 season.

Lille ended up upsetting the odds and finishing the league campaign as runners-up last term with Celik playing an important role in the side.

The French side will play Champions League football next term as a result.

He also became a regular call up to the Turkey national team over the same period and starred in the recent 2-0 victory over France in the Group H Euro 2020 qualifier earlier this month.

Celik has two goals in nine international caps for the Turkish national side.
