Spurs steal a march on Arsenal and Liverpool by securing talks with Galatasaray's Arda Turan
Tottenham have opened preliminary talks over a proposed deal for Galatasaray captain Arda Turan with the possibility of Giovani dos Santos going the other way.
Highly-rated Turkey international Turan has been on Tottenham's radar for the past 18 months and sources in Turkey say they have offered £4million plus Mexican Dos Santos for the 23-year-old.
That's likely to fall short of Galatasaray's valuation for a player who is such a popular figure at the club but Turan is keen to come to the Premier League and London in particular.
Liverpool and Arsenal have both been linked with Turan but Tottenham look to have stolen a march on their rivals.
