Fenerbahce are eyeing up a move for Everton striker Josh King, should he not extend his deal at Goodison Park at the end of the season.
King joined the Toffees on deadline day of the January transfer window, arriving as a late addition from Bournemouth after Everton sent Cenk Tosun on loan to Besiktas.
His deal at the club runs until the summer, and, having played a bit-part role at best so far, it is yet to be seen if he will extend his stay on Merseyside.
Every indication from Everton has been that they are keen to keep him beyond this summer but should the two parties decide to part ways, Fenerbahce will be waiting in the wings.
Sabah state that the Turkish club have already ‘started the transfer studies’ for next season and are preparing to ‘detonate the bomb’ when it comes to King.
It’s claimed that ‘contacts’ are already underway with the 29-year-old, who was actually linked with a move to the Super Lig side last summer.
In fact, he shared a picture of his son wearing a Fenerbahce shirt on social media during the transfer window, which naturally sparked more rumours about a move.
The club have remained ‘in touch’ with him since, and should Everton elect not to extend his deal; they will make their move to take him to Turkey instead.
For now, it appears that there is simply contact between the two parties, but this is one to certainly keep an eye on as the season enters its final stages.
