New Galatasaray manager targets Lokomotiv Moscow star

Galatasaray - Türk Telekom Arena

Galatasaray’s new manager Hamza Hamzaoglu has targeted Lokomotiv Moscow’s striker Oumar Niasse.

Niasse worked with Hamzaoglu while at Akhisar Belediyespor.

The Senegal international has had trouble finding a regular first team spot in the team and is said to be looking for a move away from the club.

According the the Turkish newspaper AMK, Galatasaray are preparing a loan bid for Niasse in January.

The 24-year-old strike moved to Russia from Akhisar at the start of this season for €6.5 million.

Niasse has made two assists and scored four goals in 11 games for Lokomotiv Moscow this season.
