Galatasaray are making a late bid to sign Nottingham Forest linked midfielder Eric Junior Dina Ebimbe ahead of the transfer deadline. The window in Turkey closes this evening and the strugglers are hoping to swoop.

The Turkish giants are enduring a woeful season. They languish in 13th place in the Super Lig and are in desperate need of a lift from somewhere.

Certain people behind the scenes at the club believe that Ebimbe could deliver the lift they need; with the youngster down the pecking order at PSG.

Foot Mercato claimed in July that Chris Hughton was keen to sign the 21-year-old. A move never came to fruition though and Mauricio Pochettino did give him some game time earlier in the campaign.

Now, Get French Football News claim that Galatasaray want to make their mark before tonight’s deadline. Furthermore, they claim that they hope to strike a deal to buy Ebimbe rather than loan him.

The central midfielder was close to a move to Bayer Leverkusen in the January window. Again, however, a deal broke down and Ebimbe remains at the Parisian giants.

Ebimbe has spent time on loan with Dijon and Le Havre during his career and he’s made 12 appearances for PSG; all of which came during the current campaign.

Regret: Forest may rue not signing Ebimbe

Although Forest are relatively well-stocked in the middle of the park, Ebimbe could prove to be a future star.

Clearly, there is something a miss. Leverkusen chose not to sign him, whilst Troyes also failed with a loan bid during January.

A move to the Championship could have seen him thrive though and he’d have had former teammate Loic Mbe Soh to help him settle in.

He is decent on the ball, doesn’t mind a tackle and perhaps crucially has bags of potential.

If he does sign for Galatasaray before tonight’s deadline, Forest will almost certainly monitor his progress with intrigue.
