Eljif Elmas: Atletico Madrid make improved offer for Fenerbahce youngster
It is without a doubt that Eljif Elmas is being strongly followed by several top clubs around Europe. The 1999 born Fenerbahce midfielder is one of the rising stars of European football, catching the eyes of several scouts with his consistent performances this season. In addition to Lazio, Zenit, Fiorentina, Inter, and Tottenham have all shown interest from the player; Inter and Tottenham were said to have made offers for the player last week. However, today, there is a new club involved in this mix. From La Liga, Diego Simeone’s Atletico Madrid are said to have also made an offer for the player. According to reports, after the first proposal of 15 million euros – which was rejected – the Colchoneros are ready to make an improved offer: a figure of around 20 million euros. A reasonable amount, Fenerbahce is said to be waiting for the summer to come to sell their Macedonian starlet. This is because they are convinced that a bidding war will ensue for the player, giving them the maximum amount for Elmas.
