Fenerbahce have moved ahead of Milan in the race to sign out-of-favour Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas, according to reports.
The Rossoneri are interested in a deal for the Spaniard, who is out of contract at Stamford Bridge at the end of the season, but due to Financial Fair Play rules cannot offer a fee in January.
Turkish reports via Sercan Hamzaoglu suggest President Ali Koc is currently in London for negotuations with Chelsea, and is willing to pay a fee for a January deal.
The Spanish midfielder has started just one of the West London club’s 20 Premier League matches to date this campaign, appearing as a substitute just four times.
Fabregas has been linked with a number of clubs including Milan, Valencia and Atletico Madrid, but his next destination has appeared unclear.
The former Arsenal and Barcelona midfielder moved to Stamford Bridge in the summer of 2014 and celebrates his 32nd birthday in May.
