The report states that the Istanbul Giants are close to striking a deal with both Linnes and Molde.
Linnes is expected to arrive in Istanbul early next week to complete his move to Galatasaray.
The Norwegian right-back played a staring role in Molde’s win over Fenerbahce this season in the Europa League and got himself on the scoresheet.
Galatasaray are expected to make major revisions to their squad following a disappointing start of the season. The Istanbul giants find themselves in third place with 30 points in 17 games.
