The attacking department of the Galatasaray squad needs quality additions this summer.
The reports in England suggested that Galatasaray are tracking the progress of Mbwana Samatta.
The Tanzania international only joined Aston Villa from Genk in 2020 for 10.5 million euros and his contract runs to June 2024.
The 27-year-old is considered to be one of the best forwards in Tanzania. His record for Tanzania is also impressive. Samatta has scored 18 goals in 51 matches for Tanzania at senior level.
His performances have seen him become the target of many European clubs including Galatasaray.
The report claims that Galatasaray manager has extensively scouted Samatta and is considering a move for the forward.
Mbwana Samatta is a long-term target of Galatasaray and could be a decent addition for Fatih Terim’s side.
Galatasaray are desperate to make an impact in the summer transfer window.
Samatta has the talent to play many roles in attack.
According to the report, “Galatasaray are lining up a move for Aston Villa forward Mbwana Samatta. Fotospor says Galatasaray also wanted Samatta in January and they have conjured up another plan to get their man this summer. But their move rests on whether Villa are relegated from the Premier League. The Turkish giants believe Villa will be willing to offload players if they are relegated to the Championship.”
