Lyon interested in Galatasaray winger Kerem Aktürkoglu, left-back Ridvan Yilmaz of Besiktas

As reported by Ignazio Genuardi, Lyon are looking at signing Galatasaray’s Turkish international winger Kerem Aktürkoglu as part of a major squad overhaul this summer.

The 23-year-old’s contract runs to 2026 and has also been on Marseille’s radar this season despite the Turkish giants struggling in the league. Aktürkoglu has provided 26 goal contributions in 67 games for Galatasaray since joining in 2020, as per Flashscore.com

The Turkish market, following the example of famed sporting director Luis Campos when with Lille, has become one of special interest to Lyon’s scouting unit lead by Bruno Cheyrou with Fenerbache midfielder Miguel Crespo also linked in recent weeks.

The Ligue 1 club has also made advances for 20-year-old left-back Ridvan Yilmaz of Besiktas, says Genuardi, who could replace Chelsea loanee Emerson Palmieri this summer.
