Galatasaray to consider bid for Napoli defender Vlad Chiriches

According to the football transfer rumours in Turkish Media, Galatasaray will consider bid for Napoli defender Vlad Chiriches.

The Romania international has joined Napoli from Tottenham Hotspur for a fee in the region of 7 million euros in July 2015. The 27-year-old has a valid contract with Napoli until June 2020.

Since his arrival from Tottenham Hotspur, Vlad Chiriches has scored four goals in 32 games for Napoli, including two goals in 15 games in all competitions this season.

The 27-year-old is considered to be one of the best defenders in Romania.


Vlad Chiriches has represented Romania at Under-21 level, winning three caps, before making his senior international debut in August 2011. As a member of Romania national football team, Vlad Chiriches has won 45 caps.

The Romania international is thought to perfectly fit the profile of defensive player Igor Tudor wants to target in the summer transfer window.

Igor Tudor will reportedly be handed a huge transfer kitty this summer and the Napoli defender is thought to be among the manager’s priorities.

Euro Football Rumours understood that the Romania international is quite low down the pecking order at Napoli and would be let go for a decent price.

How strong that interest is and whether Galatasaray will make a summer move remains to be seen but it is certainly one worth keeping an eye on.
