Fenerbahce currently sits at the Turkish Super Lig summit with 29 points after 13 games. Olayinka could be a great addition to the Yellow Canaries because of his great skill at finishing.

If the Turkish outfit succeed in signing Olayinka, he will be the second Nigerian player at the club after Bright Osayi-Samuel.

The impressive star can play anywhere across the attacking line, having scored seven goals and having three assists in 27 official matches for his current side this season alone.
