Galatasaray are launching a bid for Fiorentina striker Adrian Mutu.

Bucharest media sources say Gala coach Gheorghe Hagi has made his fellow Romanian a priority target for the January market.

Gala are offering €5 million to Fiorentina to sell Mutu - and will hand the striker a €2 million-a-year deal to move to Istanbul.

Mutu still has financial problems as Chelsea chase him for compensation over the manner of his departure from the London giants.
