Crewe will have to fight it out with Turkish second division side Malatyaspor for Tranmere Rovers striker Calvin Zola.

Zola is thought to be in talks with Crewe with a view of a permanent at Gresty Road, although no official confirmation has yet been made by either Tranmere or Crewe.

However, if the Alex are to tie up any deal they will have to beat Malatyaspor to his signature. Malatyaspor are thought to have lodged a bid for the 23 year old and could scupper Crewe’s hopes.

Zola, originally from Congo, could welcome a move away from Prenton Park after Ronnie Moore looks to have made his two main strikers Ian Moore and Chris Greenacre.
