Galatasaray confirm interest in Fernandao [divider]
Galatasaray manager Hamza Hamzaoğlu has confirmed interest in Bursaspor striker Fernandao.
“He [Fernandao] would be great alongside Burak in a 4-4-2,” Hamzaoğlu told Fanatik.
“The two work work really well together, he could also fit into a 4-2-3-1 setup as the centre forward with Burak and Umut on the wings.
“He is a versatile player who would add a lot of quality to our attack, he holds the ball up well and is dangerous in the box, if we can strike a good deal for him he would be a great January addition.”
Fernandao is currently on loan at Bursaspor from Atlético-PR. The Green Crocodiles have a €5 million buyout clause which remains active until the end of the season.
The 27-year-old striker has 11 goals and one assist in all competitions this season.
Galatasaray are currently in third place on 35 points just one point behind league leaders Fenerbahçe.
