Galatasaray have been linked with a surprise move for the Fenerbahce midfielder Mehmet Topal.

Topal previously played for Galatasaray before moving to Valencia and then onto rivals Fenerbahce.

The Turkish newspaper HaberTurk claim that the Lion’s are preparing an offer for the Topal whoes contract expires in the summer.

Topal had reportedly reached an agreement-in-principle with Tottenham according to Fanatik. The 30-year-old’s agent Batur Altiparmak is however, remaining coy over the latest transfer rumour and refused to rule out the possibility that he may leave.

Altiparmak told “Everybody writes something different every other day so I am not going to respond to every transfer rumour.

“Let us wait until the end of the season and see what happens.” 

Topal is one of the few players to have won the league title with both Galatasaray and Fenerbahce. The experienced midfielder also has experience playing for Valencia and is a regular in the Turkish national team setup.
