Turkish Superliga giants, Fenerbahce Sports Kulubu, have expressed interest in signing Ghanaian midfielder, Mohammed Kudus during the summer transfer window.

The 19-year-old star has been in top form in the Danish Superligaen for FC Nordsjaelland this season, netting nine goals and providing one assist in 19 games.

According to Turkish sports tabloid, Fanatik, last Thursday, Kudus remains the number one transfer target of the "Yellow Canaries" and they are ready to splash the cash to battle rivals Galatasaray who are also in the queue for his signature,

Kudus’ current contract with FC Nordsjaelland expires on June 30, 2021 and so far, no talks have begun for a possible extension, meaning the Danish outfit could cash in to secure his services.

Aside Fenerbahce and Galatasaray who have made their intentions known, Kudus is also on the radar of a host of teams across Europe, including Everton, Lazio, Genk, as well as German Bundesliga side, Eintracht Frankfurt.

The promising midfielder moved from the Right to Dream Academy to the second team of FC Nordsjaelland in January, 2018 after which his exploits earned him promotion to the senior team before the start of the 2019/2020 season.

His buy-out clause is currently pegged around five million Euros with just a year on his existing contract with FC Nordsjaelland.

On the international scene, he has featured for both the national Under-17 and 20 teams and also scored on his Black Stars debut against South Africa in a 2021 AFCON qualifier at the Cape Coast Sports Stadium on November 14,2019.
