Galatasaray are set to hold talks with Watford FC’s out of favour striker Víctor Ibarbo.

The Turkish sports paper AMK state that the Lion’s General Secretary Fatih İşbecer will meet with the Colombia international this week.

AMK go onto state that if Ibarbo responds positively, İşbecer will fly to Cagliari who are the 25-year-old’s current employers. Ibarbo is currently on a season long loan at Watford FC from Cagliari.

Watford manager Quique Sanchez Flores recently stated that Ibarbo is not in his first team plans at Watford and can leave in January.

“At the moment Ibarbo is not in my plan,” Flores was quoted as saying by the Watford Observer.

“We are always thinking what is best for the player. Ibarbo has quality to play for other teams.

“We don’t think Ibarbo is ready to play for Watford and that is my decision. So we will try and find the best option for him because we want him to be happy.”

Ibarbo has made just three Premier League appearances for Watford this season and is expected to depart during the January transfer window.
