Fenerbahce make Ziegler bid

The extended transfer window in Turkey could see Reto Ziegler leave Juventus before Serie A kicks off.

Turkish clubs have until September 5 to conclude deals and reports in Italy are suggesting that Ziegler is now wanted by Fenerbahce.

Despite recently rejecting a switch to Trabzonspor, it is being claimed that Fenerbahce are close to agreeing a €2.5m fee with Juventus.

It now remains to be seen whether the left-back will accept the transfer.

Ziegler only joined the Old Lady this summer on a Bosman after his contract at Sampdoria expired.

However, new boss Antonio Conte has already told him that he doesn't feature in his 4-4-2 plans.

Juventus have reintegrated Fabio Grosso into the squad as a result. The World Cup winner didn't train with his teammates in pre-season.

Paolo De Ceglie is the club's other left-back option, even if Giorgio Chiellini could be used in that position too if necessary.
