Milan want €20 million (£16.87 million) as transfer fee for the 25-year-old attacking midfielder, and Tottenham are ready to pay it, according to the report.
The report has added that Spurs head coach Jose Mourinho wants to sign the Turkey international as a replacement for Christian Eriksen, and the player himself is ready to leave Milan.
Tottenham fans have given their take on speculation regarding Calhanoglu on Twitter, and below are some of the best comments:

Milan as they currently are have ruined plenty of good players, he could be a low risk high reward signing and still only 25, should be aiming for piatek as well, need a focal point more then another cam type player— Jordan Everson (@j_everson7) January 23, 2020

Good signing for Tottenham Hotspur?
Calhanoglu did well when he was at Bayer Leverkusen, but the 25-year-old has not exactly been a massive success at Milan.
With Eriksen set to join Italian giants Inter Milan, as reported by The Telegraph, Spurs will need a replacement for him this month, and Calhanoglu would not be a bad option for €20 million (£16.87 million).
