Galatasaray brought a striker and returnee Henry Onyekuru this winter, who impressed on his new debut with two goals, and on the last day of the transfer window, the Lions finished two more loud signings for the Turkish football climate and one not at all naive from North Africa.
Right-back DeAndre Yedlin arrived from Newcastle, and there is a loan from Tottenham: Benfica's Gedson Fernandes moved to Istanbul on loan, and Galata also loaned attacking player of the Egyptian Zamalek Mostafa Mohamed.
When it's about Yedlin, the player of the United States of America has been brought to further strengthen the otherwise best and least generous defense of the Super League, while the Portuguese will try to show numerous football qualities that led Tottenham to loan him for 18 months and after that, they had a right to sign him for 50,000,000 euros.
However, Fernandes was never a starter in the jersey of Tottenham, with whom he broke up six months before the planned deadline.
Galatasaray is aiming for the title
Yedlin didn't get much chance in Newcastle this season, and instead of fighting for survival with Newcastle, he will have the opportunity to attack the title of Turkish champion in Galata because the Istanbul giant is currently only three points away from the leadership position held by Fenerbahce, while with two points less they look at the back of Galatasaray.
After four and a half years, 125 games, three goals, and 11 assists at the club from St. James's Park, the American, as a free agent, found his fifth engagement in his professional career. As for Fernandes, both the footballer and Benfica hope he will revive his career, and the central midfielder last shook the net at the end of November 2018, no less and no more than against Bayern Munich in the Champions League as a Benfica footballer.
Apparently, Galata did a great job with Onyekuru, and they hope that Yedlin and Fernandes will be as good as he is. We will also add the detail that the Lions also signed the Egyptian striker Mostafa Mohamed from Zamalek today on a loan until June 2022, worth 1,660,000.
euros. The center forward from Giza was close to Saint Etienne, but he was still kidnapped by Galatasaray, which will be able to buy him for an additional 3,300,000 euros in a year and a half. Turkish clubs seem to have serious plans this season.
