Recent reports in Turkey say Super Lig giants Galatasaray are weighing up the activation of the purchase-clause in the contract of their promising striker Mostafa Mohamed, who joined the club in the winter transfer window on a loan deal from Zamalek of Egypt.

The 23-year-old striker has had a magnificent start with his new team, becoming the first Egyptian professional playing outside Egypt to score four goals in his first four appearances, in addition to creating one.

Mostafa to be offered a new five-year contract

According to the Turkish newspaper "Fotomaç", Galatasaray's first step would be activating the player's four-million-dollar purchase clause, before handing him a five-year contract with a release clause worth 25 million euros, while his salary would be range between 750,000 and 1.25m dollars.

Mohamed, who joined Galatasaray on a year-and-half loan deal for 2m dollars, has a current contract that expires in mid-2022, with the Turkish club committed to deciding on the purchase clause ahead of December this year.

The vice-president of Galatasaray, Abdurrahim Albayrak, spoke earlier about the player's perfect start with the team, stressing that the club consider him a very important investment for the future that will bring in huge revenues, which can be seen as a sign that the Turkish giants are on the verge of making a move to land the player permanently.
