Sunderland striker Asamoah Gyan is attracting interest from Turkey's biggest clubs.

The Mirror says Gyan is a deadline day target for Turkish club Galatasaray and Trabzonspor. The Ghana star was the subject of a £6million bid from the two rival giants yesterday which was turned down.

But the Turks could come back with more today and come closer to the £13m fee Sunderland paid for Gyan to temp the Wearsiders into a sale.

Gyan has disappointed this season, and is in Africa on international duty, but Sunderland's pursuit of Peter Crouch does not depend on his departure.
