Tottenham Hotspur have again been linked with Bruma - but Galatasaray are denying that a deal has been agreed.

According to a report from Turkish newspaper Sabah, Tottenham have agreed a €15million (£12.7million) deal to sign Portuguese winger Bruma – but Galatasaray have released a statement on their official website denying the story.

Bruma, 22, has long been regarded as one of the top young wingers in Europe, having initially emerged as a wonderkid with Sporting Lisbon, before joining Galatasaray in 2013.

A Portuguese youth international right the way from under-15 to under-21 level despite being born in Guinea-Bissau, Bruma struggled to make an impact with Galatasaray at first, and was sent on loan to Gaziantepspor in a move to beat a rule on foreign players, before joining Real Sociedad.

Since returning to Turkey, Bruma has excelled. With eight goals and six assists this term, Bruma has been one of the most dangerous players in Turkey, with his blistering pace causing defences problems.

Those exploits have unsurprisingly attracted interest though, and Turkish newspaper Sabah reported earlier today that Tottenham have provisionally agreed a €15million (£12.7million) deal to land Bruma this summer.

With Bruma allegedly demanding double his current salary to stay with Galatasaray, it's claimed that they have agreed to sell him to Spurs – but Galatasaray themselves have responded to the rumours.

The Turkish giants have released a statement on their official website claiming that not only has no deal been agreed, but they haven't even had contact about a summer transfer, completely denying Sabah's claims.

Spurs appear to be in the market for a pacey wide man this summer, and if they can't land Crystal Palace star Wilfried Zaha, then a move for Bruma could make some sense – if they can convince Galatasaray to sell.
