Turkish giants Galatasaray have decided to place Ivorian internationals Wilfried Zaha and Serge Aurier on the departure list ahead of the summer transfer window. According to sources from Gündem Galatasaray, the club is set to undergo significant changes, including the departure of several key players.

Wilfried Zaha, who joined Galatasaray during the last summer transfer window, has had a mixed spell with the Stambouliote club.

The winger made 42 appearances across all competitions, scoring 10 goals and providing 3 assists.

Despite his contributions, Zaha has struggled to maintain a consistent starting position in recent months, which has led to the club’s decision to part ways with him.

Similarly, Serge Aurier’s time at Galatasaray has been brief. The Elephants’ captain signed with the club shortly after the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations, arriving during the winter transfer window.

Aurier managed only 4 appearances for the team, a factor that likely contributed to the club’s decision to let him go.

Both players have achieved notable success with Galatasaray during their short stints, helping the club secure the Turkish Super Lig title this season.

Despite their achievements, the club’s management appears keen on making strategic changes to the squad.

Zaha, formerly of Crystal Palace, was expected to bring significant attacking prowess to Galatasaray. However, his inability to secure a regular spot in the starting lineup has overshadowed his initial promise.

For Aurier, the limited game time has not allowed him to make a substantial impact, leading to the club’s decision to look elsewhere for defensive options.

The decision to release Zaha and Aurier indicates Galatasaray’s intent to revamp their squad in preparation for the upcoming season.

As the club looks to build on their recent domestic success, they are likely to focus on bringing in players who can provide more consistency and long-term value.

The departures of these high-profile players will undoubtedly attract attention in the transfer market. Both Zaha and Aurier have proven track records and will likely find new opportunities quickly.

Their exits will also free up valuable resources for Galatasaray to invest in new talent as they aim to strengthen their squad for future challenges.

As Galatasaray fans await further developments, the summer transfer window promises to be an intriguing period for the club, with potential new signings set to define the next chapter of their storied history.
