Not sure who else has heard of this guy, but he is very good from the little I have seen.
He's currently at Madrid, where he's bit part at best. They play him in central midfield, I believe. But for Turkey he seems to play anywhere in midfield. He would tick so many boxes for us- he'd act as a Luka replacement, he can play wide right, should Lennon be off form or injured, he can play wide left should Bale be injured and he's pretty clinical in front of goal.
If Luka is going and IMO he needs to go ASAP, then why not, let Luka go for £30mil and get this guy in as well! It seems to make sense all round and Maureen has said today that, Sahin is free to go!!!
Come on LEVY, its oh so simple!! get busy!
I thought Madrid 'allegedly' offered him as part of the deal for Modric weeks back - and the deal was rejected. This is from June - http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-2165361/Tottenham-land-Nuri-Sahin-Luka-Modric-deal-Real-Madrid.html

Whatever the deal is - I agree with Joe that it needs to be made now so we do not go through the unsettling we went through at the start of last season. Levy should have made it clear "deal done by "this" date or not at all". It's already going to be a challenging start to the season with the new manager - let's not add to the uncertainty with players that are still looking to get out, or players that have just left and now we are scrambling to get new players in. I love the club, respect Levy, and hope for the best for our new manager - but we sure seem to turn the few weeks preceding the new season into a cluster f*&k.
