Brentford forward Halil Dervisoglu is reportedly in discussions over a potential switch to Fenerbahce. He is currently on loan in the Championship with table toppers Burnley but has struggled to make an impact in Lancashire.
Turkish news outlet Yeni Safak claim he has emerged on the radar of Jorge Jesus’ side ahead of the upcoming January transfer window. They are currently top of the Super Lig during the World Cup break.
Dervisoglu, 22, was targeted by Hull City over the summer as they hunted for signings under the ownership of Turkish media mogul Acun Ilicali. He held ‘talks’ with the Tigers, as reported by Hull Live, but ended up going to Turf Moor instead of East Yorkshire.
He has since made six league appearances for the Clarets and has chipped in with a single goal. A change of scene may well be on the horizon for him this winter.
Brentford swooped to land the Turkey international back in 2020 from Dutch club Sparta Rotterdam and he has since played 12 times for the London outfit. He has also been loaned out to FC Twente and Galatasaray over recent seasons to get some game time under his belt.
A departure to Fenerbahce would suit all parties involved as Thomas Frank’s side would get him off the books and Burnley would have a loan space freed up as they hunt down promotion back to the Premier League.
