Fenerbahce seeks to sign Bienvenu from Young Boys

Turkish club Fenerbahce says it is negotiating with Young Boys about signing Cameroon striker Henri Bienvenu.

Fenerbahce notified Istanbul's stock market in a statement about the development on Sunday.

Fenerbahce, which recently lost millions of dollars in the stock market amid allegations of match-fixing, is desperate to add new talents and improve its image.

The club says it has filed suits against UEFA and the Turkish Football Federation at the Court of Arbitration for Sport after its removal from the Champions League by the Turkish federation over the match-fixing scandal.


More than 30 people, including Fenerbahce President Aziz Yildirim, have been arrested in the ongoing match-fixing investigation that allegedly involved 19 games last season.
