Turkish giants Galatasaray are set to offer Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas a lucrative deal next summer, according to reports cited by Metro.

The Spanish World Cup winner has struggled to settle into Maurizio Sarri’s side at Stamford Bridge this season, facing increasing competition for a midfield spot from summer arrivals Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic.

Ross Barkley’s revival has also contributed to Fabregas’ lack of playing time and the former Arsenal captain looks likely to leave at the end of the season when his contract with the Blues expires.

Galatasaray are keen to lure him to Eastern Europe but the 31-year-old is likely to have a number of suitors, with AC Milan attributed with a long-term interest and a number of MLS clubs also keeping tabs on the situation.

Fabregas is yet to feature in the Premier League for Chelsea this season, with his three appearances thus far coming in the Europa League and EFL Cup.
