The Istanbul giants are confident that Marcelo Gallardo, Daniel van Buyten and Mohammed Kallon will all pen deals in the next week.
Galatasaray vice president Turgay Kiran has spoken of his optimism over the deals.
''We've come to a certain point with Gallardo, van Buyten and Kallon,'' confirmed Kiran.
''We could be given some good news in a week.''
