Nordin Amrabat is close to completing a move from Galatasaray to the La Liga side Malaga.
The Morocco international spent the season out on loan at Malaga and the Spanish club decided to activate the buy out clause.
Malaga will pay Galatasaray a €3.5 million transfer fee to secure the 28-year-old services. The La Liga side have paid the first part of Amrabat fee which amounts to €1.7 million.
“We’ve made the first payment for Amrabat. The money should be arriving at the club today,” Malaga general director Vicente Casado stated.
“The player already knows because I spoke with him last night and he’s very happy. Amrabat is now a Malaga player. The fee is €3.5 million.”
West Ham and West Brom are also reported to be interested in the 28-year-old winger according to Talk Sport.
Galatasaray signed the Moroccan international from Kayserispor for €8 million in 2012 and he still has two years left on his contract.
Amrabat had seven assists and six goals in 25 appearances for Malaga this season.
