Fenerbahce are ready to offer £1.5million (about N375 million) for Everton centre-back Joseph Yobo.
The Nigerian, 31, has been on loan at the Turkish club for two seasons and Toffees boss David Moyes is keen to sell him.
Toffees boss David Moyes is said to be keen to offload the defender, who is surplus to requirements at Goodison Park.
Yobo, who made 69 appearances for Fenerbahce, failed to hold down a first-team place at Everton due to the form of Phil Jagielka and Sylvain Distin.
Everton have also been linked with a move for Swedish international defender Olof Mellberg, though an official approach is yet to be made.
The Super Eagles’ skipper is however convinced his future will be resolved “soon” – despite Everton FC preparing to recall him from Turkey for pre-season training at Finch Farm.
The Nigerian has been on-loan to Fenerbahce for the past two seasons, after negotiations over a permanent deal broke down last summer.
