Emmanuel Eboue: Galatasaray defender happy to be linked with Juventus
Galatasaray defender Emmanuel Eboue is flattered to be linked with a move to Italian champions Juventus.
The 29-year-old joined the Turkish club from Arsenal last summer but failed to settle into life in Istanbul.
Eboue has been linked with a move to Serie A now, with Juventus and Fiorentina both said to be interested in the right-back.
The Ivory Coast international admits that he is "very happy" that the two Italian teams reportedly want him, but maintains that his future is in the hands of Galatasaray.
"I still have a long-term contract with Galatasaray, so it is up to them really," Eboue said.
"I love to play football and I am very happy when I am linked with great teams such as Juventus and Fiorentina."
