Galatasaray are chasing Sunderland striker Asamoah Gyan.

The Journal says a year ago, the Istanbul club failed with a £6m bid for the Ghanaian striker, who cost the Black Cats £13.1 million in the summer of 2010.

Sources in the United Arab Emirates say that Al Ain, where Gyan spent last year on loan, have cooled on the idea of him moving there on a permanent contract, although it does remain a possibility.
