Currently attached to top Qatari side Al Arabi, the 27-year old is subject to interest from the Turkish club as per information in sections of the media with an Sh800 million opening bid mooted in exchange for the player’s services.

Fenerbahce has scored 31 goals in 19 games this season, and as the side gives chase to  Trabzponspor and Konyaspor on the top of the log, the technical bench has decided that Olunga, who scored 26 goals in 19 games in the Qatari league fits the bill.

The Turkish club are also reported by Takvim as holding an interest in Portuguese coach Jorge Jesus, formerly at Benfica.

Formerly at Gor Mahia and Tusker FC in the Kenyan Premier League, Olunga boasts experience in Europe and Asia with stints in Sweden, Spain, and Japan leagues respectively, at IF Djurgardens, Girona, and Kashiwa Reysol.

His possible partnership with Mesut Ozil, a German World Cup winner who is considered among the best creative players in world football, is certain to excite Kenyans and most of Olunga’s fans.
