Lille slap €10m tag on right-back Celik

The Turkish right-back has caught the attention of bigger clubs since moving to France.

French football club Lille have slapped a €10 million price tag on their Turkish right-back Zeki Celik due to increasing interest from other European clubs.

The promising Turkish talent transferred to the French outfit for €2.5 million from second division club Istanbulspor in the summer of 2018.

According to reports from France, Paris Saint-Germain and Fiorentina have enquired about Lille’s asking price for their right-back.

Prior to signing for Lille, the 22-year-old was linked with a move to Besiktas, who had made a €600,000 bid but were told to cough up at least €1.5 million by the second division club.

Ultimately, Lille put up the money and snatched him away from Turkey.
