Galatasaray keen to land Gedson Fernandes

There has been intense speculation surrounding the future of Gedson Fernandes in the last period.

According to the football transfer rumours in British and Italian media, Galatasaray are keen to land Benfica midfielder Gedson Fernandes.

In January 2020, Fernandes was sent to Tottenham on loan. The midfielder has featured in only two matches for Spurs this term in all competitions.

The 22-year-old has been touted as one of the brightest young prospects in Portugal.

Gedson Fernandes has represented Portugal at Under-15, Under-16, Under-17, Under-18, Under-19, Under-20 and Under-21 level, winning 72 caps and scoring 9 goals, before making his senior international debut in September 2018. As a member of Portugal national football team, Fernandes won two caps.

The Portugal international midfielder has struggled to adapt to English football and he could be made available this winter.

Fatih Terim wants to sign a new midfielder and Gedson Fernandes is one of the names at the top of his wishlist. He has always been a manager who keeps his eyes on the most talented young players across the globe. Terim is a long term admirer of Fernandes and believes he can get the most out of the Portugal international.


The Turkish giants are in the market for just a handful of statement signings who can improve the first-team.

There is no doubt that Fernandes will take Galatasaray’s midfield to a different level.

According to the report,”Torino’s bid for Gedson Fernandes seems to have faltered, as it’s reported the Tottenham midfielder – on loan from Benfica – is close to Galatasaray. The Portuguese midfielder is currently at Spurs with an option to buy for €50m, but the London club is highly unlikely to activate that. In fact, he is widely expected to return to Benfica in January so he can then go out on another loan deal. According to the latest report from Tuttomercatoweb, his next destination will be Galatasaray. Torino had been interested with new coach Davide Nicola, but it seems the Turkish side are proving more of a draw, as the Granata are in the drop zone of Serie A.”


Galatasaray will have to come up with the right proposal to convince Fernandes to join the club.

It is claimed that Benfica are open to letting Fernandes go.

Gedson Fernandes ideal fit for Galatasaray?

If Gedson Fernandes is available for the right price, then he could be a clever acquisition for Galatasaray.

A move to Galatasaray is exactly what Fernandes needs to reignite his career, and we hope he is able to do just that.

All in all, the Portugal international will be an ideal choice for Terim as he ticks all the right boxes in terms of what he demands from his midfielders.

It will be interesting to see if Galatasaray make their move for the 22-year-old in the coming days.
