The Lions meanwhile have made signing a new forward a priority following their Champions League windfall.
The reigning Super Lig champions could earn up to €50m following the exit of Fenerbahce to Benfica in the Third Round.
Galatasaray are preparing to invest some of their additional revenues in a new forward.
Welbeck is among the names on the Lions shortlist but they will have to sell a player in order to make the transfer.
The Yellow-Reds are planning to sell Bafetimbi Gomis to Qatar or Saudi Arabia and bring in Welbeck as a replacement.
