Tottenham and West Ham face competition for Turkish hotshot

Burak Yilmaz is wanted by Spurs and West Ham

Lazio are ready to fight Tottenham and West Ham for the services of Turkish hotshot Burak Yilmaz.

The Trabzonspor ace hit a staggering 33 goals in 34 appearances last season and a move to a major European league looks on the cards.

The London rivals reckon he could cut it in the Premier League and are both reportedly preparing bids.

But now it has been revealed that Lazio have already tabled an offer for Yilmaz, who they want to spearhead their attack next season.

According to reports in Italy, the Rome side are willing to hand the 26-year-old a five-year deal at the Stadio Olimpico, which would treble his current wage at Trabzonspor.

It is now up to Burak to decide whether he sees his long-term future in Serie A, or whether he wants to try his hand in England’s top flight.
