Turkey is becoming a popular destination for some players willing to play far from home.
Clubs like Galatasaray, Fenerbahçe, and Beşitkaş are dropping some change to bring more international talent to Eastern Europe.
Beşitkaş are linked with moves for Manchester City's Robinho and Aston Villa's John Carew, after completing a deal in June with Inter Milan's Ricardo Quaresma.
Galatasaray had multiple loan deals last season, including budding star Giovanni dos Santos (Tottenham) and Jo (Manchester City). Elano had a good stint with the club, but is likely on his way out. One big name rumored to be on the club's list is Bayern Munich's Hamit Altintop.
Fenerbahçe has already secured a transfer with Chelsea man Miroslav Stoch and are looking at the Ghanaian striker Asamoah Gyan to fill the void up front.
It's no news that some Turkish clubs are set to make some noise in Europe. With the influx of new players this transfer season, expect some more surprises out of Turkey.
