Fener Target Alves May Stay in Holland

Fener Target Alves May Stay in Holland
By Nathan L. Redd

Fenerbahce Worldwide reported Tuesday that Heerenveen (Holland) star Afonso Alves had linked himself with Fenerbahce. It appears that Heerenveen may have been seeking leverage from another Dutch suitor, AZ Alkmaar, instead.

Alves stated on his personal website this week that Fenerbahce and English side Manchester City were interested in signing the Brasilian-born striker. However, Brasil's Jornal dos Sports claims that Alves will sign with AZ Alkmaar as early as Thursday for approximately 15 Million Euros. Additionally, Brasilian TV Network Rede Globo claims Alves’s agent, Roberto Tibúrcio, is already in the Netherlands working out a deal with AZ president Dirk Scheringa.

With the January transfer window now in full swing, Fenerbahce has yet to make a move on the transfer front. Zico has indicated that several players could be leaving during the mid-season window, but the club has remained mum on any transfers thus far.

Nooo, now that Ronaldo rumors aren't true and Alves signing for AZ, Fenerbahce are left with little or no choices it seems. We def need a striker, someone that doesn't miss chances like Semih, he makes a good Sub but id rather have a known striker.

Appiah should be sold same with Kezman

Hopefully Fenerbahce go after Wagner Love or someone PLEASE! or else we are screwd against Sevilla
