Fenerbahce close to landing Nemanja Bjelica

Nemanja Bjelica is set to continue his career in Turkey. One of the key players of Laboral Kutxa last season is wanted by Zeljko Obradovic who took charge of Fenerbahce recently.

The 25-year-old small forward spent three years in Vitoria. Last season Bjelica established himself as one of the leaders of the team. He was named Euroleague Week 10 MVP last season.

Bjelica has been drawing interest of Barcelona but the opportunity to work with Zeljko Obradovic and a better offer in terms of salary played an important role when deciding to accept Fenerbahce’s proposal.

Bjelica is to become the first singing of this off-season for Fenerbahce, who are set to build an ambitious team yet again.

Fenerbahce will play in Euroleague in Group A against Barcelona, CSKA Moscow, Budivelnik Kiev, Partizan and Nanterre.
