Lille’s right-back Celik a target for Man United, Arsenal, and Spurs

English Premier League trio of Manchester United, Arsenal, and Tottenham Hotspur will battle it out for the signature of Lille right back Zeki Celik in the summer.

Celik was an important player for the French side in the just-concluded when they shocked PSG to win the Ligue One title on the final day of the season.

His outing has caught the attention of a chunk of teams in Europe with the Evening Standard reporting that the player might be headed to the Premier League.

The Turkey international featured 29 times during the title-winning campaign and apart from his defensive abilities, he chipped in with three goals in the season and provided two assists.

Arsenal wants the player as a replacement for Hector Bellerin who is said to be on his way out of the club. United is in the market for another right-back to provide competition for Aaron Wan Bissaka with Spurs in need of a squad overhaul as they seek to make it to Europe next season.

Apart from the Premier League clubs, Inter Milan is said to be keen on the player as they seek for a replacement for Achraf Hakimi who has strongly been linked with a move to Paris Saint-Germain this summer.

The full-back may be available at a bargain price of £13 million.
