Fenerbahce in talks with Jorge Sampaoli

The Yellow Canaries have made an offer to Argentine manager Sampaoli to take the reins at the club.

Fenerbahce could be close to announcing their next manager. The Super Lig giants are currently in advanced talks with former Sevilla and Argentina manager Jorge Sampaoli.

The 58-year-old, whose latest gig was with the Argentina national team, is currently without a team and has numerous offers according to his agent, including from Turkey.

Fener’s administration are reported to have made him their number one priority and have made a lucrative proposal, according to sources close to the club.

His lawyer, Fernando Barredes, has traveled to Istanbul and is scheduled to meet the directors of Fenerbahce on behalf of his client to discuss the terms of the deal.

The Turkish club are going through some serious turmoil at the moment, having sacked their previous manager Phillip Cocu last weekend after a disastrous start to the season.

Assistant manager Erwin Koeman, the brother of Ronald Koeman, has been made the interim caretaker until the club can find a suitable replacement.
