Chelsea Striker Targeted By Super Lig Giants, Damien Comolli Wants Transfer Completed By Next Week

Fenerbahce sporting director Damien Comolli has names on his transfer shortlist as he continues efforts to sign a new striker according to Haberturk.

The three names on the list are Tottenham forward Vincent Janssen, Leicester City’s Islam Slimani and Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi.

The previous two names have been widely reported but Batshuayi is a new name on the list.

Fenerbahce plan to sign the Chelsea man on a loan deal and want to get the deal wrapped up before the first-leg of the Champions League third-round clash against Benfica which is on 7 August in Portugal.

The Belgium international spent the second half of last season on loan at Borussia Dortmund after falling down the pecking order under former manager Antonio Conte.

It remains to be seen what places Maurizio Sarri has for Batshuayi after replacing Conte but Valencia are reported to be interested as well according to the Daily Mail.

With regards to the Haberturk report it is worth pointing out we already dismissed the Janssen story.

Fenerbahce are not interested in the Dutch striker.

Additionally, the Yellow Canaries would not be able to register Batshuayi in time for the Benfica game.

Turkish-Football did ask Fenerbahce whether Batshuayi has been made a target.

The Super Lig outfit responded that they currently have several Premier League players on their shortlist but could not give out names.
