Lastly, Eyüpspor hooked the young defender Efe Sarıkaya, who was showcased in Altay, one of the Spor Toto 1st League teams, this season.

    The 17-year-old defender, to whom the Spanish team Atletico Madrid made an official offer last month, and the English team Manchester City sent a letter of interest, is now on Eyüpspor’s radar. It has been learned that Altay President Ayhan Dündar and Eyüpspor President Murat Özkaya are in a negotiation on the transfer of Efe, who takes part in the U19 National Team.

    Altay management, who finds Atletico Madrid’s offer low, continues its contacts with Eyüpspor about Efe’s testimonial fee. The Izmir representative, who wants to get a share of the player’s transfer to another club, also plans to sell Efe on the condition that he keep it in his squad until the end of the season. The national football player, who had a chance in the first 11 of the 17 games he took part in the first half, has a contract with the black and white club until 2024.
