The club's short statement also reveals that Attila Szalai will travel to Istanbul to attend the usual medical examinations to finalize his transfer to Turkey. The Turkish CNN also announced the news, and later, Fenerbahce also confirmed the transfer on its official Twitter page.


We've previously reported that Turkish sites predicted Szalai's change of club.

He became a footballer for Mezőkövesd in the summer of 2017, and then transferred to Apollon in the summer of 2019, which currently leads the Cypriot First Division.

This season, Szalai has played 19 matches with Apollon during which he scored three goals and assisted three times.
