Koc reportedly said ‘I will not even consider offers below €20m’.

The Yellow-Navy Blues have had a successful defensive recruitment policy. Fenerbahce recently sold Kim Min-Jae to Napoli for €18.05m.

The South Korea international has gone onto become a star name for the Serie A leaders and is starring in the World Cup in Qatar.
