Riviere has fallen out of favour at Newcastle and spent last season on loan at the Spanish side Osasuna. The 27-year-old failed to score a single goal during his spell in La Liga.
Osmanlıspor boss Bulent Uygun is understood to be keen on the player and the Turkish outlet states that the transfer could be concluded within a week.
