Chelsea defender Kenneth Omeruo is set to make decision over his future at Stamford Bridge following Nigeria’s exit from the World Cup.

The 24-year-old joined the Blues in 2012 but has yet to make a single appearance for his parent club.

Omeruo has spent three seasons on loan in the Super Lig at Alanyaspor and Kasimpasa.

A source close to Goztepe told Turkish-Football that they hope to become the third Turkish side the defender joins after making an enquiry to Chelsea with a view to loan.

The Izmir based outfit have been strengthening their defence, signing right-back Gassama and left-back Berkan Emir.

The Super Lig side want to complete the transfer of Omeruo on a temporary move and wrap up their summer business early in preparation for the pre-season.

Omeruo is likely to leave Chelsea this summer after former manager Antonio Conte left him out of the latest official squad list.

The defender has also been linked with Belgium outfit KAA Gent.
