Omeruo In Talks With Besiktas, Gala, Fenerbahce

Chelsea defender Kenneth Omeruo is locked in talks with Super Lig giants Besiktas, Galatasaray and Fenerbahce according to the Aksam newspaper.

Per the source, Omeruo’s agent is negotiating with all three clubs.

Chelsea manager Sarri does not have plans for the Nigeria international next season but he does have another two-years left on his contract.

Omeruo could be headed for yet another temporary move. The defender would complete his fourth loan transfer to Turkey if he were to return this summer.

The 25-year-old has played two seasons at Kasimpasa and one at Alanyaspor.

The centre-back would make his most high profile loan move to date if he does join one of the three major Istanbul clubs.
The report states that Omeruo is keen on returning to Turkey over the transfer window after an impressive season at Kasimpasa.
Galatasaray and Fenerbahce are reported to be favorites ahead of Besiktas.

The Black Eagles are reportedly in no rush to sign a new defender but are considering their options in case one of either Pepe or Domagoj Vida leaves.

Despite joining Chelsea back in 2012, Omeruo is yet to make a senior appearance for the London based club.

    They are all good clubs. Great prospective move for Kenneth. After the world cup, I noticed our players are now in top shape in their Various clubs and are also making good moves to Top European clubs except for Mr. Saudi Arabia

    • after all these speculations i wont be surprised if he ends up at one of those small turkish teams..it has become a norm for him to be linked to top turkish clubs every season..lol

    Omeruo had a good world and won’t be surprised if he ends up this time in any of this listed clubs which obviously are huge in turkey.
    Meanwhile,this is why they should try and cross this second round hurdle because that should open doors for top clubs in Western Europe to justle for their signature. What is happening now is a sign.
    I hope this move is successful because we need our players to start playing for the big clubs.Their is light obviously in the end of the tunnel
    God bless Nigeria!

  • Signing for Chelsea FC in 2012 was meant to be the beginning of big things to come for Omeruo however 6 years on, he is still looking for yet another club to go out on loan.

    Since appending his signature for the London outfit, loan arrangements have seen Omeruo make the following journey:

    2012–2013 → ADO Den Haag (loan)

    2014–2015 → Middlesbrough (loan)

    2015–2016 → Kasımpaşa (loan)

    2016–2017 → Alanyaspor (loan)

    2017–2018 → Kasımpaşa (loan)

    For a player who ordinarily should qualify for a British work permit, it is a surprise that no English Premier League, English Championship or even a Scottish Premier League club have moved to sign him.

    Equally shocking is the fact that none of the clubs he had previously been loaned to have made serious moves to sign him permanent from Chelsea.

    All these still don’t deflect from the fact that Omeruo is a decent African defender.

    He is timely and tidy in tackles and neat in interceptions.

    Omeruo does have his flaws but so do every other defender in one degree or the other.

    This is hoping that Omeruo sorts out his long-term club future in the coming days so he can enjoy the sort of stability that his career deserves.
