Galatasaray eye Victor Wanyama’s signature

Days after Fenerbeche reportedly failed with a cheeky bid for Victor Wanyama, arch-rivals Galatasaray have joined the list of club angling for the Kenya international’s signature.

Media outlets in Europe say the Turkish Super Lig champions have sent a delegation to London led by one Sukru Haznedar aiming to negotiate a possible transfer for the Harambee Stars captain before the August 31 transfer deadline.

Fanatik does not indicate whether Galatasaray’s bid is that of a loan move or permanent transfer.
