SunSport told you last month the winger, 26, had attracted an army of suitors including Southampton, Leeds, Burnley and Premier League new boys Watford.
While top European clubs Porto and Bayer Leverkusen also admired Murphy’s displays after an impressive end to the season.
Now Turkish giants Galatasaray have registered their interest in securing the services of Murphy.
Steve Bruce’s side are keen to nail Murphy, who has 12 months left on his deal, down to a new long-term contract.
Murphy, cost £12million from Norwich in 2017, was a key part of a much improved Newcastle side which staved off relegation and finished a respectable 12th in the table.
Murphy is among the Newcastle players expected to attract interest this summer following speculation over Allan Saint-Maximin.
