Nigerian midfielder Raheem Lawal has revealed exclusively to completesportsnigeria.com that he is close to an exit from his current team Eskişehirspor.
Istanbul giants Galatasaray have reportedly seen the 25-year-old Nigerian international as a perfect replacement for Brazilian star Felipe Melo who is angling for a move.
"Definitely I will leave but there are still some issues to be sorted out," the Super Eagles star told completesportsnigeria.com.
Eskişehirspor coach Michael Skibbe however denied reports linking his Nigerian player away from the club this summer.
"Lawal is still our player and we do not have an official offer from Galatasaray," he said.
Lawal featured in 28 games for Eskişehirspor, scored twice and provided two assists.
