Fenerbahce President Ali Koc Unveils Interest in Kolarov

The fullback of the Giallorossi could be traded out this summer and there’s the possibility to see him playing in Turkey. Fenerbahce is interested in Kolarov. 

Aleksandar Kolarov’s future is uncertain. The Serbian could be leaving Roma during the current transfer market session. Reportedly, just a few days ago, Kolarov’s brother had talked to Fenerbahce’s President Ali Koc. Nobody knew if the parties were talking about a possible negotiation but the Turkish side seems to be really interested in signing the Roma fullback.

As reported by various Italian outlets, the President of Fenerbahce was asked about this right at the end of the shareholders’ meeting and he stated: “Our team needs a mix of young and experienced players. The absence of leaders in the field was one of our shortcomings last year and a player like Kolarov would be right for us. We need people like him.”

Ali Koc is interested in the captain of the Serbian national team and Roma may be in agreement to trade him out. The Giallorossi are currently reshaping their roster to start a new project and lower the operating costs of the club.

Although Aleksandar Kolarov was the best defender of the Lupi last season, the player even scored 9 goals last campaign, his contract is set to expire in June 2020. Roma could be willing to let him go and financially speaking that may be the best choice. The Serbian left-back will turn 34 on November 10th and this may be the right moment to trust Luca Pellegrini on that side of the pitch.
