Galatasaray have asked for information on the availability of Tanguy Ndombele with Tottenham listening to offers for the midfielder, according to Media Foot.
The Turkish side have enquired about the 25-year-old after learning of Spurs’ openness to part ways with him this summer.
The report adds that Spurs will not keep Ndombele on board if they receive a tempting offer, but they are not willing to let him leave cheaply having set a price tag in excess of 50 million (£42.5m).
Tottenham’s demands could derail Galatasaray’s pursuit, although they could still launch an approach to sign him on loan if a deal is possible.
Ndombele is one of a host of names at Spurs available for transfer this summer (Evening Standard) after enduring yet another difficult season in the capital.
Antonio Conte allowed the Frenchman to return to former club Lyon on loan in January but he struggled to make his mark with the Ligue 1 side in the second half of last season.
Returning to Spurs for pre-season over the summer, he has not featured for Spurs during their pre-season preparations, having been left out of the squads.

There doesn’t seem to be much interest in Ndombele at the moment and a lot of that will be down to clubs being aware of the costs he brings along with him.
Another loan away would not exactly benefit Spurs as they could use the cash from a sale elsewhere, but it could be a last resort providing his salary is paid by another club.
