Skysports.com understands that Galatasaray have made an offer for West Ham defender Lucas Neill.

The ambitious Turkish side already claim to have captured Harry Kewell, who has been released by Liverpool, despite the winger's agent insisting a deal has yet to be agreed.

And they have now set their sights on an Australian double with Neill emerging as a top target.

The 30-year-old moved to Upton Park from Blackburn in January 2007 and in his first few months at the club played a key role in their escape from the Premier League relegation zone.

He was made captain last summer and again impressed in 2007/08, but West Ham may be tempted by Galatasaray's bid.

Neill is one of West Ham's highest earners and club bosses are contemplating whether to let him head to Turkey.
