The 23-year-old only moved to Rangers in January but new Gala boss Gerets has told his board he wants to have him in his squad.
Gerets took over at Gala from Gheorghe Hagi after the club failed to qualify for the UEFA Champions League for the second season running.
He has been charged with getting the club back challenging for the title next season - and he has indicated that he wants Buffel in Istanbul.
The Scottish champions are going to be reluctant to let a player go after only signing him in January, and it would take a sizeable offer to prise him away from Ibrox.
Gerets will hope to use his Belgian connection with Buffel to persuade him to join the Turkish outfit.
Gerets also hopes to grab another Belgian in the form of Feyenoord skipper Bart Goor.
Reports back in Belgium state that Goor is another top target for Gerets as he attempts to rebuild Gala.
