Galatasaray are on the verge of signing former AC Milan midfielder Gennaro Gattuso on a free transfer.
Head coach Fatih Terim is desperate to add some more experience to his squad ahead of the 2012-13 campaign, and the former Milan trainer sees the 34-year-old Gattuso as the ideal addition to his midfield.
Gattuso is available on a free transfer after leaving San Siro this off-season, and has previously been linked with a return to Scottish Premier League side Rangers.
However, he is now set to join the Istanbul club instead after a move to the Scottish powerhouse fell through due to the ongoing financial problems at Ibrox.
Galatasaray have reportedly reached an agreement with Gattuso for a one-year deal worth 1.5 million euros, and the holding midfielder is expected to travel to Turkey shortly to complete the move.
