Fenerbahce to explore Oscar loan

Oscar on Fener radar

Turkish giants Fenerbahce will seek to lure Chelsea midfielder Oscar on a temporary deal in the January transfer window.

The Brazil international has been consigned to the substitutes' bench ever since Antonio Conte's decision to switch to a 3-4-3 formation in early October.

Conte has previously claimed that the 25-year-old would be sold from Stamford Bridge, but there is every possibility that he could be loaned out for the rest of the campaign.

According to Sporx, Oscar is one among the top targets for Fenerbahce, who are looking to freshen their options in midfield.

Fener are currently six points adrift of surprise leaders Istanbul Basaksehir, who have been dubbed 'the Turkish Leicester City'.

Oscar, who is also on the radar of Juventus, has appeared over 200 times for Chelsea since arriving from Internacional in 2012.
