"Requests to resume the process have started to come in, we should get to work on this issue," he said at Ankara's airport, without indicating what country had contacted Turkey.
"We should be ready" to relaunch the talks, he said. "We are determined to do all we can for peace in the Middle East."
Erdogan is scheduled to meet with Syrian President Bashar Assad in Alep in northern Syria.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's Office said in response to Erdogan's announcement that "the prime minister said in the past that he is prepared to renew negotiations with Syria with no preconditions. The prime minister said that he is willing to travel to anywhere necessary to this end, and that any channel – the Turkish or the American one – is legitimate."
Ankara last year brokered four rounds of indirect talks between longtime foes Israel and Syria, focusing on the contentious issue of the return of the Golan Heights, a strategic plateau seized by Israeli forces during the 1967 war.
But talks were suspended when the Jewish state launched an offensive against the Palestinian Hamas rulers of the Gaza Strip in late December.
Turkey, a Muslim but secular country, is Israel's main regional ally with strong economic ties since signing a military cooperation accord in 1996.
However, the Gaza offensive that killed more than 1,000 Palestinians has strained relations between Turkey and Israel.
