The Priority Target: Çağlar Söyüncü

Fenerbahçe is already making plans for the winter transfer window, and the team is focusing its attention on a particular name according to the report of head coach İsmail Kartal.

, gearing up for the January transfer period, is eyeing Çağlar Söyüncü from to strengthen their defense. Çağlar, who signed with Atletico until 2027 after his contract with Leicester ended last season, returned to the team after recovering from an injury but faced unfortunate moments in the last two matches.

In the La Liga match against Athletic Bilbao, which was lost 2-0 (a), Çağlar, playing in the starting 11 for the first time this season, unfortunately caused a penalty and was substituted off in the second half. Later, in the 1-0 victory against Sevilla, the 27-year-old player, who came on as a substitute in the second half, received a red card just 4 minutes after entering the game, which somewhat diminished his standing in the eyes of coach Diego Simeone.

Fenerbahçe's Strong Position

With Rodrigo Becao's ongoing injury, Djiku representing Ghana in the Africa Cup of Nations, and concerns about the reliability of Samet and Serdar Aziz in defense, Fenerbahçe finds itself in need of reinforcement in the central defense. The Yellow Canaries are planning to approach Atletico with a loan offer for Çağlar. The national player's desire to spend more time on the field to secure a place in Turkey's national team lineup for EURO 2024 significantly strengthens Fenerbahçe's position in this potential transfer.

Two Unfortunate Matches

In the Bilbao match, Çağlar, causing a penalty in the first 11, faced a red card just 4 minutes after entering the game in the recent Sevilla encounter, marking two unfortunate incidents for the 27-year-old player.
