Exclusive: Euro giants to submit £12m bid for Everton linked Blackburn Rovers goal machine

Szmodics is on the radar of a number of Premier League clubs and sides across Europe following his goalscoring exploits for Blackburn this season.

Sources have confirmed to TEAMtalk that EvertonBrentford and Leicester City are keeping tabs on the attacking midfielder but Turkish titans Galatasaray are weighing up a move for the forward.

Szmodics finished top goal scorer in the Championship with 27 goals to win the Golden Boot, despite Blackburn’s struggles at the wrong end of the table.

Galatasaray are looking to strengthen their attacking options for next season and TEAMtalk understands they have made regular checks on Szmodics during this season.

The Turkish league leaders could be able to offer Szmodics Champions League football next season if they go on to win the Turkish league title.

They currently sit top of the table by three points with one game remaining, with second-placed Fenerbahce also two goals worse-off on goal-difference.

Galatasaray prepare £12m bid for Blackburn star

Blackburn are facing a battle to keep hold of Szmodics this summer due to the level of interest in him and the club’s cash-flow problems due to issues of getting money into the club from their Indian owners the Venky’s.

The Republic of Ireland international has two years left to run on his contract at Ewood Park and Galatasaray are ready to test Blackburn’s resolve to hang onto their prize asset with a £12m offer.
