Fanatik: Galatasaray lining up January attempt to sign Milan defender

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan defender Fode Ballo-Toure still has a market ahead of the January transfer window as a team in Turkey are interested in signing him, a report claims.

Ballo-Toure arrived at Milan from Monaco in the summer of 2021 and was expected to be the deputy to Theo Hernandez, but his early performances did not convince and in the end Stefano Pioli decided to use other solutions like Alessandro Florenzi and Pierre Kalulu at the left-back role.

According to a report from the Turkish source Fanatik (via MilanNews), Galatasaray are continuing to closely monitor the situation surrounding Ballo-Tourè, who was already linked with a move to the Istanbul club in the summer mercato.

Galatasaray would like to get rid of Pele Van Aanholt and they have identified the possible replacement in Ballo-Toure, though it is not mentioned whether Milan would be willing to sell the Senegal international midway through the season.

  1. Don’t understand why they wouldn’t want to sell him, since they’d rather play RBs in his position over him. Just get some coin in the bank and his salary off the books, and promote someone from the primavera to make up the numbers. There is literally nothing to lose if they’re unwilling to play him.

  2. We’ll see what happens with Theo’s injury and the rehab of Florenzi. They may not have a choice but to play him. This will be his chance to prove his worth. I thought the games that he played last year were pretty good.
