Arsenal are reportedly leading the pack in the pursuit of Galatasaray right-back Sacha Boey, with strong interest from several European clubs, according to Tuttomercatoweb.
The Gunners are said to be the “most interested” party, but they may face competition from the likes of AC Milan.
Galatasaray’s rising star attracts attention
Sacha Boey has caught the eye of numerous clubs across Europe due to his impressive performances for Galatasaray.
Previously, Udinese had attempted to secure the right-back’s services but faced resistance from the Turkish club.
Arsenal takes the lead in transfer race
Now, Arsenal have emerged as the frontrunner in the race to sign Boey, showing the most interest among the clubs vying for his signature.
However, AC Milan are also reportedly considering Boey as a potential replacement for Sergino Dest.
Contract and future prospects
Galatasaray are in a strong position as Boey’s contract runs until 2025, meaning the club is not under pressure to sell unless they receive an attractive offer.
Currently sitting atop the Super Lig table, a top-two finish for Galatasaray would secure them a spot in next season’s Champions League.
Boey’s journey so far
The 22-year-old right-back joined Galatasaray from Rennes in the summer of 2021 for a fee of €1.15 million.
Boey developed his skills in France and gained Ligue 1 experience before making the move to Turkey.
This season, he has contributed two assists in 23 Super Lig appearances.
