Fenerbahce in talks to transfer Sow

Fenerbahce says it is negotiating the transfer of Senegal forward Moussa Sow from Lille.

Fenerbahce released a statement to Istanbul's stock exchange on Thursday without elaborating.

Turkish media reports say Fenerbahce officials have been meeting with counterparts from Lille in Paris for the past three days, trying to agree on terms for the 26-year-old Sow's transfer.

The Turkish club is embroiled in a match-fixing scandal that allegedly involved 19 league games last season. The club was barred from the Champions League and could lose the domestic league title.
