Transfer news: Trabzonspor striker Burak Yilmaz is in-demand

Tottenham and Fulham have received a boost in their pursuit of Trabzonspor striker Burak Yilmaz after it emerged that Italian giants Lazio are reluctant to pay his €5 million release clause upfront.

Arsenal, Manchester United and West Ham are also apparently interested in the 26-year-old, who scored 32 Super Lig goals last season and is on his way out of the Turkish giants with the release clause tempting the leading clubs in Europe.

“Tottenham and Fulham are also interested in Burak Yilmaz, we shall see what happens” Trabzonspor president Sadri Sener said.
