Fanatik reported over the weekend that Turkish giants Galatasaray are looking to reinforce their squad with Milan's Hakan Calhanolgu. The reports indicates an offer of €6 million was presented to Milan but was declined. The current champions of the Super Lig sit tenth in the league and third in their Champions League group and are in dire need of creative options. Another outlet Aksam is reporting that Milan turned down the offer but are expecting a follow up offer as they value the Turkish international higher. The midfielder has been almost a constant fixture for Milan over the past two seasons either as a left midfielder or a left winger.

The Turkish midfielder is coming under fire during the international break for partaking in a controversial celebration when the national team players of Turkey gave a salute given the ongoing Turkish attacks in Syria. French politicians even tried to cancel the game between Turkey and France as a result. It is yet to be seen if the players will be penalised by UEFA for making political gestures as part of their celebrations.
