Derby County have been handed an opportunity to take a more extensive look at reported transfer target Ferdi Kadioglu in the coming weeks.

The Fenerbahce attacker has been linked with a move to the Rams.

According to Fotospor, Fenerbahce are seeking a fee in the region of £10 million for the player signed by current Derby boss Phillip Cocu during his spell in Turkey.

Football across mainland Europe has come to a standstill due to Covid-19.

Championship football has been postponed until April 3. However, with the evident Coronavirus spread, it’s possible that date will be extended further.

But one area which seemingly hasn’t been hit that hard is Turkey.

The Super League is still in action, with Cocu’s former club Fenerbahce set to play against relegation threatened Konyaspor on Saturday evening.

Kodioglu could be in action, giving Derby a better opportunity to take a look.

 

The 20-year-old attacking midfielder has posted four goals and three assists in 22 appearances in all competitions this season.

Kadioglu is highly-rated. Turkish football pundit Serkan Akcan told Haber365 if playing time had been invested in him more he could fetch £20 million this summer.

Derby have been short on creativity this season, especially in the wide areas.

With Ikechi Anya, Mason Bennett and Forian Jozefzoon likely to leave this summer, the Rams must target a new wide player or two to strengthen the squad.

Kadioglu is quick, trickery and direct. He should be high on Derby’s summer wish-list.
