Napoli after Galatasaray striker Burak Yilmaz


Napoli are interested in signing Galatasaray’s striker Burak Yilmaz according to reports in the Turkish media.

The Serie A side lack depth in attack with Higuain and Zapata being the only out and out strikers in the squad.

Manager Rafael Benitez has instructed the club to bring a goal scorer in during the upcoming transfer window.

Yilmaz has scored 11 goals in 20 appearances this season for Galatasaray.

The 29-year-old striker scored eight goals in nine Champions League appearances in the 2012-13 season, playing a crucial role in guiding Galatasaray to the quarter-finals.

The prolific striker scored 16 goals and made eight assists in 32 Super League appearances over the course of the last campaign.

Yilmaz has four years remaining on his contract.
