Recent reports have seen Tottenham Hotspur heavily linked with an interest in Galatasaray’s Portuguese winger Bruma.

Aksam reported that Tottenham had watched the player in action six times already this season as they consider making a move for the player. They also reported that Spurs would watch him in action v Fenerbahce last weekend.

The player himself has now spoken about interest in his services from other clubs, suggesting he is happy at Istanbul.

Speaking to O Jogo in Portugal he stated:

"For this moment, I do not think of the future.

"I am contracted to Galatasaray, I am happy because everyone here loves me.

“The fans treat me well, sing my name, they treat me like a son.

"It's already like being (at home) in Portugal."

Galatasaray chairman Dursun Ozbek has commented on the future of his player recently. He was reported by Sporx as making it clear Tottenham had not made an official approach for the player.

There is seemingly some substance to these rumours but currently it is far too early to tell if Tottenham are ready to make a move for the unpolished wide talent.

The young attacker has been in good form at the Turk Telekom Arena this season after initially struggling to settle into life at the club.

Tottenham will not be the only team keeping an eye on the player at present. But it seems that Bruma is quite happy to stick where he is for the time being.
