Galatasaray head coach Igor Tudor has revealed the club's intention to re-Arda Turan, although they are yet to restart contract negotiations with Barcelona. The attacker has played no part for the Catalan giants since the start of the season, and he looks certain to leave Camp Nou in the New Year. Speaking to BeIN Sports Tudor said: "Arda is a great player and one of the most important players in the history of Turkish football. Yes, I would like him to come to Galatasaray. There is a lot of talk about Arda, but since last summer we have not spoken again."

Earlier in the summer, Turan was also linked with a potential move to Arsenal, but his representative snubbed talks of him leaving Barcelona in the near future. Turan has suffered multiple injuries since, and he does not stand much of a chance of making a comeback unless the club suffer an injury crisis of their own.

It would be fair to suggest that Vincent Janssen needed to leave Tottenham Hotspur this summer. The Dutchman, who joined the English side for an estimated £18.5 million fee in July 2016, failed to inspire confidence during his brief stint at White Hart Lane but he looks to be much more settled since joining Fenerbahce on loan earlier this year.

He has featured in seven Super Lig games so far this season, scoring two goals in 454 total minutes of football in Turkey’s top flight. Perhaps surprisingly, he has completed the entire 90 minutes just twice this campaign – most recently in Fenerbahce’s 3-3 draw at home to Kayserispor at the end of October.

The agent of Emmanuel Eboue has hit back at claims that the full-back has been infected by an HIV virus.

Concerns over the right-back's health were initially raised on Sunday after his representative Tekin Birinci took to social media to state: "Unfortunately [it] is true that we are facing some medical problems about Eboue. He will go to England… so we will know how serious it is."

According to Goal Turkey, the issue was diagnosed earlier in the summer after the former Arsenal star underwent a medical with Turkish Cypriot outfit TürkOcağıLimasol in the summer. However, in a recent interview, Birinci has refused to confirm the reports citing that no official diagnosis has been made.

Istanbul soccer giants, Galatasaray are reportedly looking forward to signing Arsenal left-back, Kieran Gibbs for £4m. However, the Gunners believe Gibbs is worth more than that price and are expecting a price closer to £10m for the 27-year old defender.

Arsenal are reportedly set to sanction a deal for Egyptian international Mohamed Elneny to Turkey.

Super Lig giants Galatasaray are in talks with the Premier League side over a possible deal for the midfielder.

Reports in Turkey claim the deal could be completed soon. The African soccer star would be making way as part of a clear-out following the FA Cup champs fifth placed finish last term. The lack of Champions League football means some changes and Elneny is a casualty. Elneny could have joined Galatasaray since January 2016 but the deal never happened. The deal could be wrapped up in the following weeks.
