Fenerbahce are eyeing a move for Everton midfielder Jean Philippe Gbamin when the January transfer window opens.
That’s according to Takvim, who say the Ivorian is on their list of possible reinforcements for January.
They explain that the Turkish side are keen to add in the winter market and have already started to draw up a list of possible targets.
Two names have recently been added to that list, Everton’s Gbamin and forgotten Tottenham man Ryan Sessegnon.
This is courtesy of manager Vitor Pereira, who is a fan of both players and has had his scouts on the pair of them.
According to Takvim’s information, the club are ‘determined’ to sign either player and they ‘will make a move’ for Gbamin come January.
The fact that the midfielder isn’t a regular for Everton works in their favour, with him continuing to struggle to prove his fitness after two years of injury issues.
His contract at Goodison expires in 2024, and he’s currently valued at around €15m, suggesting the Turkish side could look at a permanent move.
We’d be surprised at that, given Super Lig sides have often shown a complete distaste to spending their own money, often opting for loan deals over permanent transfers, particularly in the middle of the season.
It seems the interest is there regardless, though, and Everton could be handed the chance to get Gbamin off the books when January rolls around.
