Villarreal striker Roberto Soldado has reportedly agreed a move to Turkish giants Fenerbahçe, reported the Spanish sports daily, Diario AS. The daily cited various sources in Turkey to claim that the Istanbul club have secured the services of the 32-year-old in an estimated 8 million-euro-deal.

Meanwhile, Turkish-football.com also reported that the Yellow Canaries have struck a deal with the former Real Madrid, Valencia, Getafe, and Spurs striker, whose contract at El Madrigal expires next summer. Beşiktaş and Trabzonspor were also interested in Soldado earlier this summer but the Black Eagles later settled for another Spanish striker, Alvaro Negredo. Soldado scored nine La Liga goals in 38 appearances since returning to Spain from White Hart Lane in 2015. He, however, missed six months of the last season following a surgery on his right knee.

In other transfer news, Anderson Talisca, who was on loan in Beşiktaş last season, is on Inter's radar, with the Italian side reportedly drawing up a possible 40-million-euro move for the attacking midfielder. Turkish media outlets have claimed that Benfica were not interested in an earlier Beşiktaş offer for the player and instead offered the Turkish club a share of any possible deal.

The 23-year-old has been the subject of much speculation during the summer transfer window. Previously, it was rumored that United were interested in the Benfica star. The Brazil international enjoyed a fine season in the Turkish top flight, netting 16 goals in 31 appearances for Beşiktaş, who eventually won the title.
