Galatasaray step up for Gervinho

Galatasaray are ready to double Gervinho’s Parma salary to tempt him away, although the Ducali want €15m.

The 32-year-old Ivorian’s excellent season back in Serie A – with 11 goals and three assists – put him back on the map following a spell in China.

Fenerbahce, Lille, Monaco, Fiorentina and Inter could also make a move, but it’s Galatasaray who seem most determined to complete the swoop.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the Turkish giants are offering a three-year contract worth €2.5m net per season plus bonuses.

He currently earns €1.3m at Parma, but the Ducali could propose a new and improved deal to keep him at the Stadio Tardini.

If they are to sell Gervinho, then the asking price is €15m.
