The Leicester City man has been linked with a £40 million move to Al Nassr in Saudi Arabia but the Turkish side have now shown interest in the attacker.

According to Turkish website, Fanatik.com.tr, Galatasaray are hoping to take advantage of the striker who didn't have enough playing time at the King Power Stadium in the first half of last season.

They will be playing in the UEFA Champions League next term and they are hoping to use that advantage to lure the Nigerian forward away from his current club.

The Nigeria international joined Leicester City for £16 million from CSKA Moscow two years ago. He returned to Russian side as loanee and impressed again.

NAIJ.com earlier reported that FIFA has shortlisted Nigeria’s Ahmed Musa’s second strike against Iceland for the Goal of the Tournament Award.
