All the latest transfer rumours

Turkish newspaper Sabah claimed on Monday that a deal worth in the region of £12.5 million had been struck with the Premier League club.

But Galatasaray posted a withering statement on their official website to deny this was the case, while also rejecting suggestions Bruma had sought "a 100 per cent raise as a condition to sign a new contract with our club".

The statement read: "In this news that is not really interesting, there is no official offer to reach us, just as there is no secret agreement for the price [with] the club that has been named [Tottenham]."

Bruma joined Galatasaray from Sporting CP in September 2013 and has spent time on loan at Gaziantepspor and Real Sociedad.

Spurs on longest winning streak

The 22-year-old has starred with eight goals and six assists for Igor Tudor's side in the Super Lig this season and his current deal expires in June 2018.

Tottenham, meanwhile, have cut the gap at the top of the Premier League to four points, with Chelsea having been beaten by Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday.
