Galatasaray completely deny that Tottenham have made offer for Fernando Muslera

Galatasaray have denied that Tottenham are attempting to sign goalkeeper Fernando Muslera.

Galatasaray have released a club statement on Twitter to declare that they haven't received any offer from Tottenham Hotspur for goalkeeper Fernando Muslera.

Muslera, 29, made his name in Italy with Serie A side Lazio, before moving on to Turkish giants Galarasaray in the summer of 2011.

With almost 200 appearances to his name with Galatasaray, Muslera has been a mainstay of the side ever since his arrival in Istanbul, whilst he has racked up 77 caps for the Uruguayan national team - despite actually being born in Argentina.

Now though, his performances in Turkey appear to have triggered major interest in his signature, with the Daily Star reporting last summer that Manchester United were preparing a bid for Muslera, whilst Turkish outlet Spor Alemi claimed today that Tottenham Hotspur have already made an offer to sign Muslera ahead of the summer transfer window.

That latter report clearly set tongues wagging in Turkey, and Galatasaray have tonight released a short club statement via their official Twitter account, declaring that they have received no bids from Spurs for their star goalkeeper, and haven't been in negotiations over his sale.

Tottenham already have arguably the best goalkeeper in the Premier League in Hugo Lloris, whilst Michel Vorm is a more than capable deputy.

For Spurs to be interested in Muslera, they would surely only need him as a replacement if Lloris or Vorm left the club, which doesn't look particularly likely right now, unless Tottenham receive offers they simply can't refuse during the summer transfer window.

Do Tottenham need to sign another goalkeeper this summer?
