Galatasaray set to replace Onyekuru with Ghanaian youngster

​Turkish champions Galatasaray are reportedly eyeing a summer move for Ghanaian youngster Joseph Paintsil, according to Football Ghana reports.

The Super Lig side are working towards replacing Nigerian forward Henry Onyekuru with Paintsil, who was one of the standout players at KRC Genk in the just ended Belgian Jupiler League.

The 21-year-old helped Genk win the league title League where he featured in 25 games and scored three goals for the club.

The former Tema Youth attacker joined the Belgian side last summer after excelling in Hungary for Ferencvarosi.

Paintsil's impressive performances have drawn the attention of several clubs in Europe including Anderlecht.

The former Ghana U20 winger is a member of the Black Meteors helping the team reach the final stage of qualifiers, where Ghana will face Algeria.
