Ajansspor report Fenerbahce have identified Leicester City’s Adrien Silva as a potential target, with claims the club’s sporting director Damien Comolli is ready to open talks with the English club to sign the Portuguese midfielder.

Silva has recently been linked with a return to Sporting but Ajansspor say Fenerbahce have made an initial approach with regards to a loan deal and possibly with an option to buy.

The 29-year old joined Leicester City for €25m but has failed to make his mark in the Premier League.

The Turkish club are in the market for a midfielder in the transfer window and they’ve also been linked with a move for Besiktas’ Tolgay Arslan.

Silva has played just 88 minutes of Premier League football for Leicester City this season and the player could look to leave the Premier League club in order to get more football elsewhere.

The Portugal international is under contract at the King Power stadium until 2021.
