Galatasaray in race for Arsenal defensive target

Galatasaray are planning to sign Manchester City defender Jason Denayer on another one-year loan.

A source close to the club told Emre Sarigul that the Lions made an enquiry to City regarding the availability of the Belgium international next season.

Denayer has been loaned out for the past few seasons and spent last season at the Istanbul giants winning the Turkish Cup.

The young defender setup Lukas Podolski for the winning goal in the 1-0 win over rivals Fenerbahce in the cup final.

The Lions could however, face competition from Arsenal who acording to The Sun, have been tracking both the 21-year-old for the last couple of years.

Gunners boss is keen on signing Denayer over the summer for a fee ranging between £10-12 million.

Denayer does have another four-years remaining on his current contract but it remains to be seen if head coach Pep Guardiola has plans for him next season.

Galatasaray will not compete in European competition next season due to a UEFA competition ban after failing to meet FFP guidelines.
