Diego Rossi to Fenerbahçe – Turkish club confirm deal in principle for LAFC forward


Only medical missing 

Fenerbahçe want to sign Diego Rossi from Los Angeles FC. On Monday, the Turkish outlet A Spor tweeted that the Turkish Süper Lig club are preparing an offer for the 23-year-old Uruguayan forward. That information has since been confirmed by reliable ESPN reporter Jeff Carlisle. According to Carlisle league sources have confirmed that the Major League Soccer club is currently holding talks with Fenerbahçe. 

Update 5:22 p.m. ET: According to Vole reporter Yağız Sabuncuoğlu, LAFC and Fenerbahçe have now agreed a deal. Rossi is expected to arrive in Istanbul on Tuesday to complete his medical. 

Update: 6:37 p.m. ET: Fenerbahçe confirmed on Monday night ET that they have reached a deal in principle with LAFC to sign Rossi. The forward is now on his way to Turkey where he will have to complete his medical and sign his contract to finalize the deal. An announcement is expected on Tuesday. 

Rossi is one of the biggest stars in MLS and last season became the first player in league history with a market value greater than €20 million after scoring 18 goals in 26 games across all competitions. But after winning the Golden Boot in 2020, Rossi’s form somewhat dropped and the forward was not part of Uruguay’s Copa América squad. With a transfer not materializing earlier in the year, the striker was downgraded from €20 million to €18 million in the latest MLS market value update.
