Fenerbahce are weighing up summer moves for Alberto Moreno and Nacho Monreal this summer, a report claims.

Turkish outlet Takvim claim that the Yellow Canaries are desperate to bring in a new left-back this summer and have been casting their eyes over potential options in the Premier League.

Their current option in that position, Ismail Koybasi, will leave the club this summer and as such Fenerbahce are building a shopping list of possible replacements.

The report claims that Fenerbahce sporting director Damien Comolli is in talks with Moreno’s agent regarding a permanent summer move to Istanbul.

However, should that not be attainable then Comolli is keeping his options open, and Monreal is viewed as an acceptable alternative.

Fener boss Ersun Yanal is believed to favour a move for Moreno, perhaps due to his versatility and ability to play higher up the pitch, however he is also apparently happy to work with the Gunners defender.

After a disastrous campaign last season in which they were locked in a relegation battle for a large part of the season, Fenerbache are eyeing a summer overhaul, but due to FFP restraints they are mostly targeting free agents.

Both the aforementioned Liverpool and Arsenal duo are out of contract this summer, so they fit the bill perfectly.
