Meanwhile, Italian outlet L’arena has also linked Galatasaray with a move for the Belgium U21 international. Bastien can play as a midfield playmaker or as a box-to-box midfielder.

Verona may be forced into selling their star asset this summer as he has just 12 months remaining on his contract with the Serie A club. Bastien scored one goal in 22 Serie A appearances for Verona this season.

Galatasaray will participate in the UEFA Champions League next season after lifting the Turkish Super Lig trophy earlier this month.
