Everton midfielder Andre Gomes is attracting interest from Fenerbahce.
The 30-year-old spent last season on loan at French club Lille and has one year left on his contract.
Despite lacking depth in their first team, Everton are willing to listen to offers for the former Portugal international who has struggled to return to his old form since dislocating an ankle in 2019.
He made 27 appearances and scored three goals for Lille last season, but money-conscious Everton, who are in talks to be taken over by 777 Partners, are ready to offload his wages from their books.
Other clubs such as Trabzonspor have shown interest, but Fenerbahce have shown their willingness to complete a deal with Everton before the Turkish window closes.

Gomes is yet to appear for Everton this season, having only been in the matchday squad once in his first four Premier League games.
He was an unused substitute against Fulham in the Toffees’ opening day defeat at home to Fulham, and is unlikely to feature for the Merseyside club any time soon.
In total, he has made 99 appearances for the club since arriving in 2018, initially on loan before making the move permanent in a £22million deal.
The Turkish window, which closes on Friday, is the last open window likely to impact major deals.
