Burak Yilmaz's time at Galatasary could be nearing the end, according to reports in the Daily Star.

Galatasaray chairman Unal Aysal is quoted as saying: "If he wants to go and Chelsea are interested then of course, why not?"

This will likely bring interest from Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool who were all linked with Yilmaz in the summer.

Yilmaz has had a bit of a slow start to life in Turkey this season, his uncertain future is believed to be the reason for this lack of form.

Galatasary representative Sukru Ergan announced the club would not be selling Yilmaz for less than £15million during the summer and the club want a similar figure for the striker.

It seems clear from Aysal's comments that Yilmaz will be sold in the next transfer window and their will be several takers.

He has previously been linked with Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester United, Lazio and Atletico Madrid all in the past year. It would appear his preferred destination would be the Premier League, which would be only there better for his arrival.

The Turkish international is a hot property and very highly regarded by many European clubs who you would expect to be queuing up for his services.

He made his mark in 2010 when he signed for Trabzonspor, scoring an impressive 19 goals in 30 league games in his first season, he went on to better this the following season scoring 35 goals in 43 games that season.

His golden season however, was last season for Galatasaray where he was in sensational form domestically and on the European stage, he notched 32 goals in 39 games, the most impressive was the eight goals in nine Champions League games which saw him finish as the competition's top goal scorer.
