Spurs and Madrid battle with Lazio for Fenerbahce wonderkid

06 January at 15:20
Lazio are preparing their search to find a replacement for Sergej Milinkovic-Savic in the long term, with the latest thoughts that Igli Tare, the club's sporting director, is searching in Turkey for the club's next big thing. 

The plan looks to be targeting Elif Elmas, Fenerbahce's young Macedonian midfielder, who, at just 19-years-old, is touted as one of the stars of the future. However, it will not be an easy task for Lazio to sign Elmas; the Turkish-born star also wanted by a collection of other top European clubs.

As per reports from Spain, Real Madrid are said to be watching Elmas; whilst the English media have suggested that Tottenham Hotspur view the midfielder as the perfect replacement for Moussa Dembele in the long term. Borussia Dortmund are also said to be sniffing around Elmas; with the club using the money they have made from the sale of Christian Pulisic to Chelsea in order to stregnthen several other key areas of their side.
