Galatasaray join French clubs chasing Bournemouth loan player

Bournemouth striker Max Gradel is a loan target for Turkish football giants Galatasaray, according to futbolarena. Gradel is being offered a viable chance to play Champions League football next season, if the Turks can beat off the competition for the Ivrorian striker's signature. 
Could AFCB sell their second player this season before bringing anyone in?
The news comes after several days of Gradel being linked to French teams for next season. Only last week, French paper L'Equipe had reported that Gradel was of interest to Rennes who were promoted from Ligue 2. St-Etienne FC, from where AFCB bought Gradel, are also said to be again interested in the CΓ΄te d' Ivorie international, according to Sportswitness.

While it may be a great opportunity for Gradel to play against the best players in Europe, if he wanted to play for Galatasaray, he has no doubt enjoyed his time in France with Toulose. h Last season he wanted to leave Bournemouth on loan to play his football in France and he found form straight away. It was a difficult season in keeping Toulouse in the top flight, but a good season season for Gradel who was the club's top scorer. Now Gradel, 30, is in demand.

Bournemouth may not want another loan period for the striker though. Toulouse were keen to have him on loan with a view to buying him at the end of the season. The potential for the Cherries to cash in on Gradel is probably quite high, having seen him do well in the French League with 11 goals and four assists.

As long as Bournemouth sit tight they could find they have a bidding war for Gradel and will be able to see some return for his year away from the club, even if the Cherries would do well to push the price up.
