Despite only joining just over a month ago, Galatasaray have already made their mind up on Yuto Nagatomo.
According to Turkish media, the Turkish giants will not seek to turn the Japanese international’s stay at the Turk Telekom arena in to a permanent one at the end of the season when his loan move expires.
The 31-year-old full back has made five appearances since completing a January transfer but the Galatasaray management do not seem convinced and have already started looking at players who can succeed him in the summer. Lyon’s Fernando Marcal has been identified as a possible replacement/upgrade on.
With this news, it has been reported that there are a few Premier League clubs thinking about adding Nagatomo to their ranks. Everton, Watford and West Ham are all understood to be interested in his services.
Nagatomo took to social media to talk about the rumours concerning him, tweeting, “The Premier League? It is an honour that there is a team that would like me from there, but it is useless to talk about it, nobody knows the future.”
