The report claims that Fenerbahce were already close to agreeing terms with Sokratis but were waiting for his contract situation to be cleared up.

Now that Sokratis is officially a free agent Fenerbahce could sign the Greek international without paying a transfer fee.

Fanatik also claim that Fenerbahce could face competition from Genoa and Real Betis.

The Yellow Canaries are expected to complete the transfer of Ozil as a free agent later this week.

Ozil is currently in Turkey and will be able to complete his move from Arsenal once he tests negative for Covid-19 after his five-day quarantine period.

Fenerbahce are currently 2nd in the Super Lig table, trailing leaders Besiktas on goal difference.
