Jose Antonio Reyes weighing up a lucrative offer from Galatasaray

Sevilla Football Club

Former Spain international Jose Antonio Reyes has reportedly received a money-spinning offer from Turkey.

With his contract set to expire on 30th June, Jose Antonio Reyes has yet to be offered a new deal by Sevilla, despite remaining hugely popular amongst fans at the Sanchez-Pizjuan.

For the player, the priority and first option always remains staying with his favourite club, but if a renewal offer isn't forthcoming, the 31-year-old former Arsenal star could be lured towards a new footballing adventure.

According to El Gol Digital, such a lure has been presented by Turkish giants, Galatasaray, who have reportedly offered Reyes a lucrative three-year deal, believed to be worth a very enticing €3 million per season.

Reyes therefore has much to consider over the coming weeks, because despite what is undoubtedly a tempting opportunity, presenting the player with his final big contract offer, he's apparently a little reluctant to leave Spain.

Having started his career with Sevilla, followed by spells with Arsenal, Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid and Benfica, the hope for Reyes will unquestionably be to see out his playing days at his hometown club. However, that remains a significant question mark for the player and the Andaluz club.

More of an impact player from the bench in La Liga, Reyes has still played a very important role in the Europa League and the Copa del Rey, as manager Unai Emery has rotated the squad to keep everyone fresh.

This season, Reyes has made 14 starts out of 18 appearances in La Liga, scoring 2 goals. In the Europa League, he has featured in 12 games and scored once, whilst in the Copa del Rey, he's played four matches and scored once.

Aside from any thoughts about his future, the centre of attention for Reyes and his Sevilla team-mates right now, will be battling for a 4th place finish in La Liga this weekend, followed by the opportunity to make Europa League history, when the team takes on Dnipro in the Warsaw final.
