Eroglu said: “Chelsea have been sending scouts to Izmir for Berke Ozer and to take a look at our project.”

Chelsea goalkeeper coach Christophe Lollichon and – loan player technical coach – Eddie Newton were also in Turkey in January keeping tabs on Ozer.

“We were impressed with Berke and other players here, we’ll continue to scout them,” he said.

Ozer was recently named in the Guardian Next Generation series, 60 best young talents in world football.

The report also claims that Fenerbahce have entered talks with Altinordu president Mehmet Ozkan and that a €3m move could be on the table.

Ozer is currently on international duty with the Turkey U18 national side ahead of the Mediterranean Games.
