Turkish giants Fenerbahçe are set to watch Huddersfield's Mathias Jorgensen at this summer's World Cup finals in Russia, with a view to making a transfer bid in the summer. 

As reported by fotoMac, the Istanbul based side are keen to offload former Liverpool defender Martin Skrtel, but would need a replacement should they be successful in selling the Slovakian.

Barcelona's Yerry Mina and Tigres' Hugo Ayala are also reported targets for Sarı Lacivertliler, but it's understood that Danish international Jorgensen may well be their preferred candidate.

Jorgensen, better known as Zanka, currently has two years remaining on his Terriers contract, but the Turkish club have identified him as a contender to significantly improve their defence.


Should they be impressed by the Dane's performances in Russia this summer, they will hope to lure the 28-year-old to the Şükrü Saracoğlu Stadium. However, this may prove difficult given his starring role in a Huddersfield side fresh from surviving their relegation battle in inspirational fashion.

Fenerbahce have not put all their eggs in one basket however, with Aykut Kocaman, the club's manager, also casting his eye over Barcelona centre-back Mina.

The Colombian has found game time hard to come by since arriving at the Nou Camp, with the Catalans perhaps open to the idea of allowing him a loan move in order to play regular first-team football.

Along with the aforementioned pair, Mexico's Ayala is also of interest to the Turkish giants, and a decision should be made on which one of the trio they would like to pursue based on their World Cup performances.

Former Liverpool and current Fenerbahce sporting director Damien Comolli will be in Russia to keep tabs on all three of them, with offers likely to be made at the conclusion of the tournament.

Zanka is perhaps the most unlikely of the three to arrive in Istanbul given the fact he played in all 38 of Huddersfield's Premier League games, so Mina and Ayala could be deemed as the more feasible options.
