Vágner Love (CSKA Moscow)
Striker - 26 years old
Turkish daily Habertürk suggests that Fenerbahçe have once again turned to CSKA Moscow striker Vágner Love. Rumours are that Canaries officials have already made an offer for the 26-year-old goalscorer who was on loan at Brazilian club Flamengo last season. Having turned down Flamengo's offer to stay at the Rio de Janeiro side, Vágner Love is also reported to be linked with Bundesliga's Hamburger SV.

According to Sabah and Pas Fotomaç, Fenerbahçe are insisting on Villareal striker / winger Nilmar. The Yellow Canaries have reportedly upped their cash plus part exchange offer and are said to be waiting for the Spanish club's final decision. Rumours are that Villareal are keen on sealing the deal and they are waiting for the approval of 25-year-old striker Nilmar himself.
Brandão (Olympique de Marseille)
Striker - 30 years old
Sabah also claims that Olympique de Marseille have snubbed Monaco's one-year loan offer for Brandão. Sabah rumours that if OM succeeds in transferring Ivorian striker Didier Drogba from Chelsea, 'there's a 90% chance' that Fenerbahçe will land 30-year-old Brazilian forward Brandão.
CSKA Moscow attacking midfielder Miloš Krasić, Rennes striker Asamoah Gyan, Manchester City winger Vladimír Weiss and AS Nancy-Lorraine striker/winger Issiar Dia have also been linked with Fenerbahçe.
