The Istanbul based club are keen to snap up the in-demand winger as his contract expires in the summer. Galatasaray need to be cautious in the transfer market as they are being closely monitored by UEFA for Financial Fair Play.

Galatasaray’s newly appointed manager Igor Tudor has made the signing of Ghezzal a top priority ahead of next season.

Meanwhile, the The Sun have stated that both Arsenal and Everton are keen on signing Ghezzal.

The daily tabloid goes onto say that Everton had a £12 million offer for the 24-year-old rejected last summer.

Ghezzal fell down the pecking order at Lyon following the transfer of Memphis Depay from Manchester United.

The pacy winger has seven assist and two goals to his name after 27 appearances for Lyon.
