Galatasaray striker Burak Yilmaz, who the Mirror say is a transfer target for Stoke City, Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham, has handed in a transfer request, according to a report in Turkish outlet the Milliyet.

The striker has scored nine goals in 15 league games for Galatasaray, and it looks like he is ready to take his talents to the Premier League.

The Turkish international, who has scored 19 goals in 49 appearances for his country, joined Galatasaray from Trabzonspor in 2012 for €5million. That fee looks like a bargain as the 30-year-old has scored 81 goals in four seasons, helping Galatasaray win two league titles.

In an interview with Fanatik, Slaven Bilic did admit that he was considering a move for the striker.

He said:

Burak Yilmaz is one of the players currently on our transfer list.

Yilmaz would provide West Ham with more depth up front, something which they currently need due to injuries.

Spurs have been keen to find a backup for Harry Kane, and they’ll hope that the more realistic prospects of a top-four finish and maybe even a title challenge will draw the 30-year-old to White Hart Lane.
