Kevin Grosskreutz is set to join Galatasaray according to the German newspaper Bild.

The German tabloid posted the news on their official twitter page earlier today. The paper states that Grosskreutz will join Lukas Podolski at Galatasaray short.

Arsenal were linked with a £3.7 million move for the Dortmund winger earlier in the year according to the Daily Star.


Galatasaray have already signed a Germany international in Podolski earlier this summer from Arsenal.

The former Koln forward is understood to be involved in negotiations to bring Grosskreutz to Galatasaray,

Grosskreutz has been at Dortmund since 2009 but has been left out of the squad since the appointment of Tomas Tuchel.

The versatile 27-year-old can play on either wing or at right-back. Grosskreutz provided four assists in 25 appearances for Dortmund last season.

Galatasaray take on  Mersin İdmanyurdu in the next round of Turkish super Lig games which take place after the international fixtures.
