Galatasaray are chasing to sign Ghana international Abdul Baba Rahman from Chelsea.
The 23-year-old has returned to training with Antonio Conte’s men following a successful knee treatment but was not included in Chelsea’s Premier League squad.
The defender has been linked with a return to Bundesliga outfit Schalke 04 all summer but reports emerging from England have it that Galatasaray are ready for an outright buy.
The reports suggest Galatasaray sporting director Cenk Ergun has already opened discussions with the Premier League champions and is hopeful of completing a deal in the next 32 hours.
Baba Rahman made 21 appearances for Schalke last season before suffering the injury while with the Black Stars.
