Tottenham Hotspur fans have been reacting to news that they could be about to make a move for Turkish goalkeeper Altay Bayindir.

According to a report from Turkish outlet Fanatik, Spurs are one of a number of sides, including Ajax, Lille, Schalke 04 and Werder Bremen, that are interested in signing him, so competition for Bayindir’s signature looks set to be pretty tough.

The 22-year-old is certainly an imposing figure, standing at 1.98m (6’6″) and valued at £9.9m on Transfermarkt, and when news of the ’s reported interest was relayed to social media, there certainly was a buzz of activity around his name, although fans seemed to be split on the idea of whether or not they wanted him to move to north London:

“OH MY GOD! i say from Turkey, Altay is absolutely incredible. we must take this.”

“6’6″ and 22 years old. Wouldn’t be a bad move considering we know doesn’t have too many years left in him”
“Please sign him”
“Who?”
“Look closer to home… Burnley to be precise.”
“Saving shots all keepers an do. Need someone who can command the area and help the defence feel secure.”

Should Spurs sell Lloris in the summer?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Current number-one Huge Lloris is entering into the final 18 months of his contract and with the threat of former Spurs boss Mauricio potentially taking him to Paris Saint-Germain in the summer, now is probably the time for them to start looking for a potential replacement.
