Sunderland have had a €6 million bid for Fenerbahce’s striker Moussa Sow turned down according to the Turkish newspaper Fotospor.
The report goes onto state that Fenerbahce are unwilling to offload their Senegalese star for anything below his release claus of €13 million.
Fenerbahce board member Mahmut Uslu recently confirmed Sow’s release clause.
“Moussa Sow has a €13 million release clause if any club matched his asking price they can enter talks,” Uslu was quoted as saying by the Radikal newspaper.
Sow has also attracted interest from fellow Premier League outfit West Ham over the summer transfer window according to the Express.
The 29-year-old scored 16 goals and provided eight assists in all competitions for the Yellow Canaries last season and still has another year left on his contract wroth €1.4 million.
Sow is expected to keep his place in the team despite the arrival of last seasons Süper Lig goal king Fernandao and Manchester United star Robin van Persie due to Nigerian international Emmanuel Emenike being loaned out to Al Ahli.
