The Turkish giants initially offered €1 million, which Everton reportedly rejected immediately.
Schneiderlin is said to be open to the move, with Champions League football and the opportunity to play regularly being a draw for the Frenchman.
The 29-year-old only started 10 Premier League games last season, coming on as a substitute four times.
The lack of involvement would indicate he is someone who is dispensable to Everton, with reports he is set to leave following the arrival of Fabian Delph accentuating that point.
However, with Idrissa Gueye being linked with a move to Paris Saint-Germain, as reported by The Express, this should perhaps be reconsidered.
Gueye averaged 4.3 tackles, 2.2 interceptions and 1.3 clearances per game (via WhoScored), which showed how integral he was for Everton defensively.
In the games Schneiderlin played, he averaged 1.7 tackles, 1.1 interceptions and 1.1 clearances, signifying his defensive contributions.
His record may not match Gueye’s, but if the Senegalese midfielder does depart Goodison Park, Everton will need players such as Schneiderlin who can help lessen the blow.
It would be understandable for Everton to allow Schneiderlin to leave, considering how little he has played, though it seems there is little benefit in allowing him to go on loan.
A large factor in his lack of game time can be put down to the level of competition rather than his performances, so the club should only let him leave on a permanent for a good price, as he could still prove to be an asset if he stays and Gueye is tempted away.
