Fenerbahce linked with Udinese forward Riad Bajic

Riad Bajic is a target for Fenerbahce in January.

According to the football transfer rumours in Italian media, Fenerbahce are linked with Udinese forward Riad Bajic.

The Bosnia and Herzegovina international has joined Udinese from Konyaspor for a fee in the region of 5.5 million euros in August 2017. The 23-year-old has a valid contract with Udinese until June 2020.

Bajic has played only 78 minutes for Udinese since signing from Konyaspor.

The 23-year-old is considered to be one of the best forwards in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Riad Bajic has represented Bosnia and Herzegovina at Under-21 level, winning 6 caps, before making his senior international debut in March 2017. As a member of Bosnia and Herzegovina national football team, Bajic has won three caps.

The 23-year-old is one of the more likely players to be offloaded by Udinese this winter and the list of suitors in the Bosnia and Herzegovina international continues to grow.

Aykut Kocaman wants to sign a new forward this winter and Riad Bajic is one of the names at the top of his wishlist.

The Fenerbahce manager is a long term admirer of Riad Bajic and believes he can get the most out of the Bosnia and Herzegovina international.

Aykut Kocaman will reportedly be handed a huge transfer kitty this winter and the Udinese forward is thought to be among the manager’s priorities.




Fenerbahce will be in the market for just a handful of statement signings this winter who can improve the first-team.

According to the report in Italian media, Bajic is expected to leave Udinese in the January transfer window. He could be loaned or sold, and a return to Turkey seems likely, with Fenerbahce said to be very interested.

It will be interesting to see what happens when Fenerbahce come calling for Bajic in January.
