Per the source, talks are underway and Puel is on the verge of leaving the Premier League outfit.
The latest reports come as a surprise considering the manager has already commented on his excitement over the 2018-19 Premier League fixture list.
“There’s always lots of excitement when the fixtures are announced and looking at our schedule for the new season, it’s certainly an exciting one for both our players and our fans,” Puel was quoted as saying in the Leicestershire Live.
“Travelling to Manchester United on the opening weekend certainly presents us with a challenge, but all games in the Premier League are tough and this gives us a chance to show what we are capable of against a team with great quality.”
Fenerbahce are currently managed by Aykut Kocaman but he is expected to part ways with the club on Friday.
The Yellow Canaries are expected to make major changes following Ali Koc winning the presidential election.
The appointment of Comolli as sporting director was Koc’s first move as president.
The Istanbul based outfit are likely to make announcing a new manager as their next change.
