Galatasaray are open to the prospect of selling striker Burak Yilmaz, following reported interest from Chelsea.
The Blues have been linked with a January move for the 28-year-old, and Gala chairman Unal Aysal has indicated his club would be prepared to listen to offers.
Speaking at the Leaders in Football conference at Chelsea's Stamford Bridge, Aysal said: "If he wants to go and Chelsea are interested then of course, why not?
"I favour Turkish players going to Europe to play in European leagues."
When asked if the Premier League side had already made an approach, he added: "No, not yet.
"We had some requests from Lazio at the end of the summer, but the deal didn't go through because the conditions were not satisfied."
It has been reported that Chelsea will go as high as £28million for the Turkey international and the Blues could offer Demba Ba as a makeweight to convince the Turkish club to sell.
