Galatasaray’s transfer demands for Sacha Boey have emerged amid links of a move to Arsenal.

The Gunners have been linked with a move for the Galatasaray right-back for the past few months. Recent days have seen Bayern Munich make a move to sign the talented 23-year-old during the January transfer window.

Reports emerged on Thursday that Bayern were expressing an interest in signing Boey before next week’s deadline. However, at the time of writing, there has been no agreement between the two clubs.

Journalist Fabrizio Romano has reported that the two clubs are in talks over a deal, with Bayern hoping to get a deal agreed today (Friday) to allow the player to fly to Munich for a medical. There have been separate reports claiming that a €15 million (£12.8m) fee would be involved in a deal, but that has now been dismissed by a Galatasaray chief.

Deputy chairman Erden Timur has revealed that no agreement has been reached for Boey’s exit from the club and that the aforementioned price tag is not accurate, with interested clubs forced to go higher. Timur also expressed his determination to have Boey remain at the Turkish club beyond the current transfer window.

“We are not in favour of Sacha’s departure. His situation is not clear,” said Timur, via journalist Nevzat Dindar.

“There are offers for many of our players. The management will make the final decision. We will not sell Boey for the figures being mentioned in the media.”

Boey revealed last year that he had held talks with Arsenal over a potential transfer during the summer. However, the Galatasaray defender admitted that no offer was made by the Gunners to bring him to the Emirates Stadium.

“I had contacts with various clubs,” Boey told CARRE in November. “These clubs also contacted Galatasaray. There were opportunities for me to go to the Premier League.

“There were some meetings between Galatasaray administrators and Arsenal officials. There was an interest, but there was no official offer.”
