Fenerbahce have not made a move for Spartak Moscow striker Welliton, Goal.com can exclusively reveal.

The Brazilian has a bad relationship with sporting director Valery Karpin, and rumours had stated that the Istanbul giants were interested in snapping up the player.

However, a source close to the Russian outfit has confirmed that those suggestions are false, and Fener have not registered an interest in the player.

Other sides within Turkey are thought to be weighing up a bid for Welliton, who moved to Europe from his homeland in 2007.

A more likely destination for the 26-year-old could be Ukrainian outfit Metalist Kharkiv, who are known to be interested in the former Goias player.

Welliton has scored 60 Russian Premier League goals for Spartak since moving there in 2007, but is yet to find the back of the net this season.
