Galatasaray are interested in Argentine stars Federico Insua and Kily Gonzalez.Galatasaray have declared their interest in Argentine stars Federico Insua and Kily Gonzalez.
Outspoken Vice President Ergun Gursoy said in a press conference that Internazionale winger Gonzalez and Insua are very much on their wish list this summer.
"Insua and Gonzalez have been mentioned in the media for some time," said Gursoy.
"It's true that we'd like to see them in our squad. We're working on that."
Manuel Rui Costa has been one of many other names mentioned by Gala directors since the embarrassing transfer of Franck Ribery to Marseille.
However, Gursoy spoke pessimistically on the Portugese star.
"That transfer seems unlikely. The prices are too high.
"Turkish teams don't have the budgets to finish transfers early on in the summer transfer window. There are five to ten players that are popular in Europe and clubs like Real Madrid and Milan get the majority of them.
"We just get the leftovers from their squads towards the start of the season, like last year."
Meanwhile, Galatasaray's Hakan Unsal is set to sign for another Turkish Super Lig outfit Caykur Rizespor after agreeing terms.
Hakan Unsal, who'd spent a short while at Blackburn, has agreed a two-year deal with the Black Sea club, according to their president Erol Yildirim.
"We met today and agreed complete terms," said Yildirim.
"He'll sign a contract on Wednesday."
