Caykur Rizespor coach Hikmet Karaman has said both Emmanuel Adebayor and Mathieu Flamini are set to join in the coming days.
The Turkish club are keen to add more experience to their ranks and have targeted ex-Arsenal striker Adebyor, who left Crystal Palace at the end of last season, and former Gunners midfielder Flamini.
Karaman told Turkey's Anadolu news agency: "We reached an agreement in principle with both players.
"They'll come to Rize within a few days and the last step of negotiations are going to be done.
"This is down to everyone working to finish the deals, so I have to thank the board of directors and our president."
