The 27-year-old stopper's current contract in Istanbul expires at the end of the season and a move back to Germany looks likely.
Dogan made 32 Bundesliga appearances for Uerdingen between 1994 and 1996 and has won two caps for Germany.
"It's no secret that we are looking to bolster our defence," said Allofs. "Dogan would be ideal as he would have no need to get used to a new language or culture."
Werder and Fenerbahce met in a friendly in Antalya, Turkey, during the Bundesliga winter break and exploratory talks between Dogan and Bremen coach Thomas Schaaf took place after the game.
Meanwhile Allofs (pictured during his playing days) rejected reports that Turkish international stars Rustu Recber and Ilhan Mansiz were also on his shopping list.
"They are not on our agenda," he said.
