Turkish side Besiktas are trying to seal a deal for Fulham winger Kerim Frei before their deadline, according to agent Martin Wiesner.
Cottagers boss Martin Jol spoke out last month to rebuff reports that the 19-year-old Turkey international was poised to depart Craven Cottage with Galatasaray wanting to sign him for around £2million.
The Dutch tactician insisted the player, who only played eight times for Fulham last campaign and spent time on loan with Cardiff, does have a future at the club but could be sent out on loan once again.
Jol said: "Kerim is part of our future but he is still developing. I want him to play games and continue to progress."
However, Wiesner has reportedly told Turkish Eurosport that Besiktas have made an approach ahead of their deadline on Tuesday evening and will offer to pay 3million euros while handing Frei a five-year contract.
However, as Fulham have rejected all previous offers in the past, it is unlikely they will sanction a permanent move away for the youngster.
