Turkish Super Lig outfit, Galatasaray, have reportedly started negotiations to sign Egypt international and Pyramids FC winger Ramadan Sobhi.
After deciding not to make Henry Onyekuru’s move from AS Monaco permanent, Galatasaray are currently on the lookout for a new forward to replace the Nigeria international.
One of the names that has been recently linked with a move to the Turkish giants is Egyptian starlet Ramadan Sobhi. A report by Takvim earlier this week suggested that Sobhi was offered to Galatasaray.
Now, Turkish news outlet Fanatik are claiming that the player and the club have been in negotiations for a while now and we could potentially see the 24-year-old in the Turkish Super Lig next season.
According to the report, Sobhi’s representatives demanded $2.2 million per year but the club have only offered $1.5 million plus performance-based bonuses.
Should Ramadan join Galatasaray, he will reunite with Mostafa Mohamed after the duo played together with the Egyptian U23 national team as the young Pharaohs lifted the U23 AFCON.
Following an underwhelming stint in the English Premier League with Stoke City and Huddersfield Town respectively, Sobhi was sent on loan to boyhood club Al Ahly.
He spent two years with the Red Devils and seemed to be in the course of signing a permanent deal with the Cairo giants. However, Egypt’s rising team Pyramids FC snatched him by offering the most lucrative contract in Egyptian football history.
Sobhi scored 10 goals and four assists in his debut season, setting a new individual record, and was close to lifting the CAF Confederation Cup but lost in the final to RS Berkane. © KINGFUT
