The Galata Tower is a medieval stone tower in the Galata area of the city and is one of Istanbul’s most iconic landmarks offering great views of the city.

Tourists can walk or take an elevator to the top of the tower and enjoy the scenery or have something to drink and eat.

Süper Lig giants Fenerbahçe are reported to be in talks with Yeşil according to Turkish sports newspaper Fanatik.

Yeşil struggled for playing time this season due to a double cruciate ligament injury that ruled him out until the turn of the year.

The 21-year-old has since recovered and has three goals for the U21 side since his return.

The Liverpool youngster would play as a domestic player in Turkey despite being born in Germany. Like his teammate Emre Can, Yeşil is also of Turkish origin.
