Fenerbahce reportedly failed with an attempt to sign Manchester City’s David Silva this week.
The European transfer window slammed shut nine days ago as Premier League clubs finalised their summer business.
However, the Turkish one remained open until last night.
And Hurriyet claim that Fener made an attempt to bring the Spanish playmaker to Istanbul.
Silva, 31, has been at City since 2010 and remains a key player for the club.
The ex-Valencia star has featured in all three matches for the Citizens so far this campaign.
Despite the wealth of options available to him, Pep Guardiola still views him as one of his main men.
Although the reports in Turkey claim that both a fee and personal terms were agreed between the player and Fenerbahce.
And that City had agreed a fee with their counterparts.
No deal was made public and neither club has commented on the speculation.
Silva is expected to line-up for Guardiola’s side this afternoon when they welcome rivals Liverpool to the Etihad.
He will be hoping to continue his fine start to the campaign which has seen him contribute two assists already.
Meanwhile, Fenerbahce did manage to get one deal with an English club over the line yesterday.
They secured the loan signing of Tottenham striker Vincent Janssen on loan until the end of the season.
The summer transfer window was one the craziest we have ever seen.
Take a look at the most profitable transfers of ALL time.
And here are the Premier League players whose wages made them the most expensive per minute played.
