Galatasaray are chasing Manchester City defender Kolo Toure.

The Sunday Mirror says Toure has been lined up for a move to join Didier Drogba at Galatasaray.

The Turkish giants have already signed former ­Chelsea striker Drogba and Wesley Sneijder from Inter Milan, and have made it through to the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

Now Galatasaray want a new big-name central ­defender to complete a spine of stars and have made the Blues' Toure their top target.

Toure, who turns 32 on Tuesday, is an Ivory Coast team-mate of Drogba and his City contract expires in the summer.
