Besiktas have made an enquiry for Fulham winger Kerim Frei. The Black Eagles are interested in a permanent move or a loan deal with a future buyout option.

Fulham are yet to respond however, the Cottagers have been reluctant to let go of their 19-year-old prospect.

Kerim was born in Feldkirch, Austria but raised in Switzerland by his Turkish father and Moroccan mother. Kerim was first spotted by Swiss side Grasshoppers aged 13 and was snapped up by Fulham just three years later.

After rising through the youth ranks the Fulham starlet was given his Premier League debut on 10 December 2011, in an away match against Swansea City aged just 18. Kerim went onto make 36 appearances for the Cottagers that season.

The tricky young winger is not the most physical player but makes up for it with his individual skills, ability to take on defenders in one-on-one situations as well as his speed and acceleration.

Galatasaray have also been interested in Kerim and have been scouting the Turkish international winger over the past two seasons.
