Transfer News: Besiktas warn Spurs, Newcastle of Tosun price; West Brom in for Yiadom

Besiktas president Fikret Orman has warned interested Premier League clubs over their price for Cenk Tosun.

Tottenham, Newcastle, Crystal Palace and Everton are all keen on Tosun, with talk of a bid of €20m being mentioned.

“There's no figure for him," Orman told NTV Spor.

“These players are like my children – I have an interest in their careers. They aren't machines. (Kylian) Mbappe went to Paris Saint-Germain for €180m (£158.5m), (Naby) Keita for €70 (£61.7m) or €80m (£70.5m), so placing a higher value than €20m on Tosun is not crazy.

“If Mbappe had played for Besiktas, would PSG have paid that amount? We need to raise the brand value of Turkish football."

Meanwhile, Barnsley right-back Andy Yiadom remains a target for West Brom.

His contract at Oakwell expires in June and he has just turned down a new deal.

Baggies boss Tony Pulis wants to add him to the defensive ranks to compete with Allan Nyom and Craig Dawson at right-back.
