Fenerbahce attacking from all angles to sign Leeds star Ezgjan Alioski - report

Fenerbahce are attacking from all angles to sign Leeds United star Ezgjan Alioski this summer, according to Takvim.

The Turkish outlet has reported that contact has been made with the agent of the left-back, who is currently away at EURO 2020.

An offer is yet to be made, but it is expected soon as Alioski’s deal at Elland Road runs out in less than two weeks.

Alioski has decisions to make, and quickly, with the EUROs taking him close to the start of pre-season at every club.

The 29-year-old has been linked with five clubs this week, with Galatasaray, CSKA Moscow, Besiktas and Trabzonspor also supposedly interested.

Fenerbache and CSKA are ahead of the rest based on these latest updates, and we know which of those two we would prefer his next move to be.


It is time to start accepting that Alioski won’t be at Elland Road next season.

If the offer on the table from the Whites was good enough, it would have been signed weeks, if not months ago.

The left-back fired home for North Macedonia this week against Ukraine, as he tries to put himself in the shop window for the best possible move.

Whether a move to Turkey and the likes of Fenerbache secure that, we don’t know, but one thing for sure, he will be closer to home and European football could be a big attraction.

Marcelo Bielsa certainly wouldn’t have wanted to lose him, he was trusted in his system. Alioski will be remembered, but it’s time to wave goodbye.
