According to Spormani, Galatasaray will return with another move for Lech Poznan winger Kamil Jozwiak despite reports claiming he is nearing a Derby County switch.
The Rams have long been linked with a move for the Poland international winger.
Polstat Sport first covered Derby’s interest in Jozwiak during the January transfer window, with Lech Poznan at the time seeking a £3 million fee.
A January deal ultimately never materialised, but the speculation hasn’t stopped.
The latest from Meczyki says Jozwiak is on the verge of a switch to Derby.
But fresh news coming out of Istanbul editorial Spormani say Galatasaray representatives are to land in Poland in the next few days to try and thrash out a deal.
Galatasaray are already said to have seen one bid rejected, while they hope to come to an agreement to take Jozwiak on an initial loan with an obligation to buy him.
There is very little coming out of English media in terms of Derby’s interest in him.
It could well be Derby are trying to keep a lid on the speculation. But on the other hand, some may feel the Polish media are using the Rams to drive up Jozwiak’s asking price.
Derby County lack wide options:
Either way, Derby head into the new season desperately short on wide players.
Phillip Cocu’s side lost their last pre-season friendly 2-0 to Sheffield United at Pride Park. It was their third pre-season game out of four where they’ve failed to score.
The absence of Martyn Waghorn, Tom Lawrence and Wayne Rooney is a factor.
But there remains a lack of top-quality options out wide while there appears to be little pace in the final third. It’s a weakness Cocu must try to rectify this summer.
