Fenerbahce have joined the race for Aston Villa winger Trezeguet according to the Fanatik newspaper.

The report claims that Trezeguet has an €8m clause which will be activated if Villa are relegated from the Premier League.

Fenerbahce are not, however, interested in signing Trezeguet on a permanent deal as they are in the midst of a debt crisis.

The Yellow-Navy Blues instead want to loan Trezeguet with a €6m option to buy.

The Istanbul giants would be prepared to pay the 25-year-old’s wages in full.

Trezeguet is no stranger to Turkey having previously made a name for himself playing for fellow Istanbul based side Kasimpasa.

The Egyptian joined Villa from Kasimpasa last summer and has another three-years remaining on his contract.

Villa are currently 19th in the Premier League which is set to return on 17 June following the coronavirus disruptions.
