Reports in the Turkish press write VfL Wolfsburg general manager Dieter Hoeneß' statement that they have received a request for talks from Fenerbahçe, but not a formal proposition. German news agency DPA has stated talks between the clubs have picked up speed.
Miloš Krasić (CSKA Moscow)
Attacking midfielder - 25 years old
Turkish daily Habertürk cites reports in the Serbian press that Miloš Krasić is tired of waiting for Juventus. The 25-year-old attacking midfielder is reported to have said that he will wait for the Serie A club's decision until Friday and after that he will consider offers from Manchester City and Fenerbahçe. Krasić is reportedly attracted by Fener's lucrative offer and the chance to play in the UEFA Champions League. "My transfer will be settled in the next ten days, but I'm open to everything," the player is reported to have said.
AS Nancy-Lorraine striker/winger Issiar Dia, Manisaspor goalkeeper Orkun Uşak, Gençlerbirliği striker Mustafa Pektemek and Olympique de Marseille striker Brandão have also been linked with Fenerbahçe.
