Gaitan offered to Turkish quartet

Atletico Madrid have offered out-of-favour playmaker Nicolas Gaitan to four Istanbul-based club, say reports in Spain.

According to Diario AS, Los Rojiblancos have offered the former Benfica midfielder to Galatasaray, Fenerbahce, Besiktas and Istanbul Basaksehir.

The 29-year-old joined Atleti in a €25m from the Portuguese champions last summer, netting four goals and providing five assists in 36 appearances across all competitions.

The midfielder was reportedly offered to English Premier League sides West Ham United and Watford on Thursday in moves that did not materialise, supposedly to help raise funds for Atletico's pursuit of Diego Costa.

Diego Simeone’s side are said to be requesting €15m for Gaitan although this price may be outside of the economic capabilities of the Turkish sides, who’s transfer window remains open to 8 September.
