The Turkish giants signed Dutch playmaker Wesley Sneijder from Inter Milan last week and look set to confirm Drogba’s before the end of the month, despite late interest from Chelsea.
The 34-year-old Ivorian left Stamford Bridge in May after guiding the Blues to a glorious FA Cup and Champions League double.
But the powerful forward has struggled to settle in the Chinese Super League – despite a reported salary of around £200,000 per week – and has been frequently linked with a move back to Europe.
Drogba is currently at the African Cup of Nations with the heavily fancied Ivory Coast but is expected to travel to Istanbul to finalise terms with Galatasaray as soon as the Elephants involvement in the tournament comes to an end.
