Turkish newspaper Fanatik report Galatasaray are set to rival Fenerbahce for the signature of Aston Villa winger Trezeguet.
It’s reported Gala’s interest in Trezeguet became obvious when his former teammate Mbaye Diagne posted a photo with him and the Egyptian photoshopped in a Cim Bom jersey.
Fanatik say the Super Lig club’s board are looking to reunite Diagne and Trezeguet, after the players formed an impressive partnership when they were at fellow Turkish club Kasimpasa.
Aston Villa paid €10m to Kasimpasa to sign the Egypt international, whilst Diagne joined Galatasaray for €13m.
However, yesterday there were reports Fenerbahce were closing in on the player and were close to announcing his arrival.
Trezeguet has made 38 appearances for Villa in all competitions this season, scoring six goals. He scored a brace last weekend against Crystal Palace to keep Aston Villa’s hope alive.
With a contract at Villa Park expiring at the end of June 2023, it’s likely the Turkish sides interested will try for a loan move rather than a full transfer.
