Turkish newspaper AMK Spor report Fenerbahce sporting director Damien Comolli is looking to bring Celtic’s Jozo Simunovic to the Ulker Stadium this summer.

Fenerbahce manager Phillip Cocu has reportedly told Comolli to sign the Celtic player, but it’s unlikely Brendan Rodgers will want to lose the player.

The 23-year old central defender made 30 appearances for Celtic in all competitions last season and has also been linked with a move to Fenerbahce in the past.

As it stands the Turkish club only have two senior central defenders at their disposal and Cocu has told Comolli they need a quality central defender to come in.

AMK Spor say Simunovic is also keen on the idea of playing for Fenerbahce, and he’s made it clear to Celtic he wants to leave if the Yellow Canaries make an official bid for him.

The Turkish media often insist players are eager to move to their biggest clubs, so there may be some bias involved there.

The former Dinamo Zagreb player still has three years left on his current Celtic contract.
