Fenerbahce Have Atalanta Staple into Their Crosshairs

Fenerbahce have laid eyes on Mario Pasalic in their lengthy search for a midfielder. Turkish clubs have four more days to conclude transfer market deals and are taking advantage of the situation. For instance, Galatasaray will sign Tanguy Ndombélé and Davinson Sanchez from Tottenham, while Trabzonspor are acquiring Nicolas Pépé from Arsenal, Fanatik reports.

The Canaries extensively tracked Rade Krunic this summer but haven’t been able to convince Milan to sell. The situation is highly unlikely to change down the stretch. The Bosnian international will probably obtain a new contract thanks to their pursuit.

Fenerbahce reportedly tracked Pasalic at the beginning of the summer already. However, Atalanta turned down €15M at the time as they didn’t want to sell him. They didn’t make many moves in the midfield. They confirmed all their pieces and added Michel Adopo on a free deal from Torino.

The 28-year-old Croat is tied to La Dea until 2025. He has been in Bergamo since 2020 following a move from Chelsea. He has posted 45 goals and 27 assists in 202 appearances since then.

Our Take on Fenerbahce and Pasalic

Nothing wrong with trying, but it’d take a massive offer to convince the Nerazzurri since they wouldn’t be able to replace him. They are arguably already insufficiently deep at the position as is, even though they have proper workhorses.
