A claim has been made that Galatasaray are keen on securing a transfer for Tottenham Hotspur talent Pape Matar Sarr.

This revelation has emerged on Fanatik, as the 20-year-old’s future may be in doubt at Spurs.

With Pape Matar Sarr playing a measly 623 minutes of football in all competitions for Tottenham Hotspur, Galatasaray seemingly believe that could sign him next season.

The youngster has shown flashes of brilliance at the Premier League side, especially as his calmness on and off the ball against the likes of Crystal Palace, Liverpool and AC Milan caught the eye.

Back in December, even Antonio Conte branded the Senegalese defensive midfielder as a ‘very good prospect.’

Now, it has been reported that Galatasaray have ‘shown interest’ as they are prepared to sign Pape Matar Sarr.

To the extent that the Turkish heavyweights even sat down with Spurs to discuss the prospect of signing him, as they also addressed the possibility of selling Vincent Nelsson to them.

Tottenham should only sanction a loan deal

While Pape Matar Sarr is not expected to play a starring role at Tottenham in the following campaign, they should still not sell him on a permanent basis to Galatasaray.

The highly-rated wonderkid clearly has a lot of potential, as his knack for sniffing out danger is top-class, whilst his composure and pass selection has looked promising in limited minutes.

Also, it is key to reiterate that Spurs do not have too many technically secure players at their disposal, let alone midfielders in any case.

If the club do not consider the former Metz sensation to be ready to push Oliver Skipp for a starting place, it would be wiser to send him on loan.

Sarr certainly has the capability to explode if given regular starts elsewhere and that is not worth giving up on yet.
