Fenerbahce reportedly want to sign Super Eagles midfielder for Jose Mourinho.

Fenerbahce are looking to equip Jose Mourinho with the tools to help them dominate the Turkish Super Lig, and they are said to have identified Super Eagles midfielder Wilfred Ndidi as an ideal option to strengthen their midfield.

Ndidi, 29, was an integral member of Enzo Maresca's squad that won the English Championship last season and returned Leicester to the Premier League. However, his contract is close to expiration, and clubs are circling around the experienced midfielder like sharks.

According to Turkish publication T24, Fenerbahce are looking to capitalise on Ndidi’s contract situation as they are preparing to offer him a contract to join Mourinho's charges.

Ndidi's contract with the Foxes runs out later this month, however, unlike Iheanacho who was released, the 2015 Premier League winners want to keep the midfielder and have offered him a two-year contract extension.

The former Gent midfielder is yet to put pen to paper; however, and the Turkish side want to snap him up before he further commits his future to Leicester.

Ndidi is currently with the Super Eagles, and he played in the matches against South Africa and Benin Republic where Nigeria got a draw and a loss respectively.
