Fenerbahçe, aiming for championship titles in both the league and Europe, has initiated searches to add important stars to its squad during the mid-season break.
Fenerbahçe wants to make precise moves in January, similar to what they did in the summer. Head Coach İsmail Kartal had requested 3-4 transfers, especially in the aftermath of injuries.
With a broad transfer list, Fenerbahçe's new target has now been revealed.
It is reported that the yellow and navy team has entered the scene for a globally renowned star.
Surprise striker incoming
According to Takvim's report, Fenerbahçe, planning to part ways with Joshua King and Ryan Kent, who have faced criticism for their performances, has set its sights on Portuguese left-winger Jota.
Open to parting ways
Among the circulating reports is that the star player, whose contract with the Saudi Arabian club Al Ittihad will expire in 2026, is open to leaving the team.
Fenerbahçe aims to add the Portuguese winger to its squad on loan, as he does not have permission to play in his current club.
Jota, who has appeared in 7 matches for the Saudi team, has only scored 1 goal. The young star, who has contributed with 46 goals and 45 assists in 206 club career matches, has a total of 91 goal involvements.
Portuguese star Jota, who has played for teams like Benfica, Real Valladolid, and Celtic, has had a total transfer fee of 45 million euros paid for him.
It is expected that the Fenerbahçe management will meet with the player's agent in the coming days. The terms of the transfer will be discussed in this meeting.
