Galatasaray have recently been liked with several with central defenders, including Real Madrid’s Pepe, Chelsea’s Kurt Zouma and Manchester City City pair Eliaquim Mangala and Jason Denayer.

Fanatik claim the latest name on their shortlist is Stoke City defender Bruno Martins İndi. The newspaper reports Galatasaray are following his situation closely and if Stoke City don’t use their option to redeem the Dutchman, they are ready to step in.

Galatasaray are currently going through a tough spell and they are already set to miss out on a top 3 position for the second consecutive season. The Galatasaray board are looking to build a much stronger team for next season, and the club are ready to battle for the SuperLig title.

Fanatik say Galatasaray officials are currently in England for Martins İndi and they are ready to do everything they can to sign him because he’s become their No1 choice for next season.


Stoke City are expected to use their option, so it could be a wasted journey for the Turkish club, unless the defender decides he doesn’t want to stay.
