Turkish newspaper Gunes have claimed in a report that Tottenham Hotspur have placed a €25m bid for the 23-year-old keeper from Trabzonspor, Ugurcan Cakir.

Liverpool are also reportedly pursuing the highly-rated goalkeeper and are said to have submitted a bid as well.

Hugo Lloris has been out of action for the Premier League side for most of the season due to injury and it is being said that Jose Mourinho has started looking out for a proper replacement.

Hugo Lloris proved his mettle when he put up an excellent performance against Man City at the weekend, however, struggled throughout the game against Southampton last night.

Now 33-years-old, Spurs may soon have to turn their attention to a new long-term option between the sticks, with understudy Paulo Gazzaniga always an option.

Mourinho apparently wants to replace Paulo Gazzaniga with Cakir and Spurs will hold talks with Trabzonspor at the end of this season. Inter Milan and Napoli are also said to be interested.

€25m for a back-up keeper sounds like too much for me. I also believe that Lloris and Gazzaniga can do a job for another season, as spending is needed far more in other areas such as full-backs, defensive midfield, and on a new striker.
