Ryan Porteous is attracting big interest this summer despite links to Millwall and Queens Park Rangers.
The Hibernian defender has enjoyed an excellent season in the Scottish Premiership after making 42 appearances in all competitions for the club.
That form led to significant interest from Gary Rowett’s side during the January transfer window with the Lions having a £1million bid rejected for the player late in the window.
The Daily Record have also claimed that Queens Park Rangers have an interest in the player, but it seems that interest is building in the 22-year-old.
Reports in the Scottish Sun have said that Porteous could be playing his football in the Champions League next term with Turkish giants Galatasaray said to be keen on a move for the player.
The club finished second in the Turkish Super Lig last term and are looking to strengthen ahead of a fresh title challenge this term.
It’s claimed that Galatasaray are preparing an offer which will be lodged next week, with the fee said to be a seven-figure outlay with a significant amount of add-ons included in the deal.

It will be very interesting to see how this impacts the transfer plans of Millwall and Queens Park Rangers.
Both sides are likely to be looking for central defenders this summer and after showing a previous interest in the player there’s a decent chance that they’ll still be monitoring his situation.
A move to Galatasaray will surely be appealing for the player given their involvement in continental competitions, but if a move to the Championship emerges as an option then it’s surely something that he’ll be keen to pursue.
At 22 years of age there’s plenty of developing for the player to do and so this next move will be key for him.
