Callejon’s contract runs its course in June, and AS cites reports in Turkey which claim Fener are serious about taking the Spaniard and have reached out to his representatives. The Turkish giants no longer have the financial muscle to splash out in the transfer market and are instead fishing for free transfers. The 32-year-old, for his part, has played 32 times for Napoli this season, scoring two goals and providing nine assists. AS adds he may opt to return home and join third-tier side Marbella, who are backed by Chinese businessman Zhao Zhen. Marbella were on course for promotion to the Segunda Division before coronavirus struck and have ex-Real Madrid midfielder Esteban Granero in their ranks, as well as Callejon’s brother Juanmi.”
