Yazici emerged as a real force in Turkish football last season, netting six times and laying on 10 assists for team-mates, earning rave reviews.

But has recently attracted the attention of some Premier League heavyweights such as Everton after breaking into Trabzonspor’s first team.

Last season Yazici established himself in Ersun Yanal’s first-team plans after stepping in during Mehmet Ekici’s injury lay-off.

Over the summer he was also linked with a move to Liverpool, but nothing materialised.

Now, however, Fanatik are reporting that Jose Mourinho’s side are eyeing up a move for the Yazici.
