Brentford claims € 5million from Galatasaray for signing striker Halil Dervisoglu, Turkish media report Sabah claimed.
Dervisoglu joined Galatasaray on loan from Brentford in the January transfer window, and has since scored one goal and provided two assists in nine league appearances for the Turkish giants.
Now it looks like this has led to some interest in a longer-term deal to keep the 21-year-old in Turkey beyond the end of this season.
According to this latest update, Galatasaray is keen to keep Dervisoglu for next season, following his performances since arriving in Istanbul.
however, one thinks that Brentford is asking for a € 5million fee for the striker, and it remains to be seen if that’s a price Galatasaray – who are currently third in the Turkish top flight – would be willing to pay.
Did Brentford sign those 19 players on a free transfer or not?
Having joined Brentford from Sparta Rotterdam in January 2020, Dervisoglu has only made nine appearances in all competitions for bees, and also spent the first half of this season on loan in the Netherlands with Twente, before this move was made. be discontinued, prompting his loan to Galatasaray.
As it stands, Dervisoglu has three more years left on Dervisoglu’s contract with Brentford, putting championship-promoting pursuers in a strong position to negotiate any offer that comes their way.
I think this is a fair price for Brentford compared to Dervisoglu’s demand.
Obviously, he’s never really had the chance to prove himself with bees, but Galatsaray’s interest suggests that there is an ability and potential in there, that Brentford won’t be willing to give up easily.
Indeed, three years away from his contract, Brentford is obviously in control of Dervisoglu’s contract, as there is no pressure on them to sell anytime soon.
As a result, it will be interesting to see if an offer arrives for the striker this summer, whether from Galatasaray or elsewhere.
