Vikash Dhorasoo is attracting interest from across Europe as he bids to make a return to football.
The diminutive schemer has been in the wilderness since being sacked by Paris Saint Germain, where he endured a less than amicable relationship with coach Guy Lacombe.
Dhorasoo was previously a target for Bolton but it would now appear Galatasaray have stolen a march in their bid to land the 33-year-old Frenchman.
An 18-month contract has been mooted and while his agent, Alain Migliascio, is loath to disclose too much information, it has been suggested a deal could be concluded before too long.
"We have had nothing from there (Galatasaray) but it is just the start of the transfer window," said Migliascio.
"We will wait a little while and then take stock in about ten days."
Reports from France have suggested Italian side Livorno and Villarreal of Spain have also expressed tentative interest.
