Both clubs are expected to send scouts to observe Kadıoğlu in Fenerbahçe’s upcoming match against Hatayspor.

Fenerbahce face Hatayspor on Saturday away from home, Kadıoğlu is likely to start in the key game in the title race.

Kadioglu has two goals and three assists in 36 appearances in all competitions this season.

The 24-year-old is under contract until 2026 so Fenerbahce are not under pressure to sell unless the price is right.

The versatile full-back can also play as a central defender, winger and in midfield.

With his dynamic style of play, Kadıoğlu seems likely to depart the club at the end of the season.

Fenerbahçe management is hoping to secure a significant transfer fee for the rising star, aiming to surpass the record set by Sacha Boey who was sold to Bayern Munich by rivals Galatasaray.

Fenerbahce are currently second in the Super Lig just two points behind league leaders Galatasaray and are also competing in the European Conference League.
