Per the source, the forward has been transfer listed but he is not available on loan.
Fenerbahce are set for talks with Perez’s agent but if the latest report does turn out to be true it could force the club into pulling out of the deal.

Fenerbahce are not in a financial position to sign Perez on a permanent deal this window.
