Fenerbahce have joined their biter Istanbul rivals Galatasaray in the race to sign Chelsea centre-back Gary Cahil.
The England international has found himself on the fringes of Chelsea’s squad following the appointment of Maurizio Sarri as manager.
The Yellow Canaries have been keen on signing a defender after Luis Neto’s loan deal expired of the summer.
A source close to Fenerbahce has revealed the Turkish-Football.com that they are interested in a move for Cahil.
Per the source, director of football Damien Comolli will meet with Chelsea officials to enquire about the 32-year-old’s availability.
Yesterday we reported that Galatasaray are also interested in signing Chelsea’s star centre-back.
Cahil was not included in Chelsea’s squad which defeated Arsenal by a 3-2 scoreline over the weekend. The experienced defender has slipped behind Andres Christensen in the pecking order at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea will be hoping to register their third Premier League win in a row when they take on Newcastle United.
Galatasaray meanwhile are up against Alanyaspor at the Turk Telekom Stadium.
