Updated: July 7, 2015

Beşiktaş are set to seal a deal for Grémio captain Luiz Rhodolfo according to Gianluca Di Marzio.

The well respected Italian sports journalist reports that Beşiktaş officials have travelled to Brazil to finalize the transfer of the 28-year old Brazilian central defender.

Beşiktaş had reportedly already reached terms with the player himself and made an official € 3 million offer to Grémio yesterday.

The Black Eagles are looking to seal this transfer as soon as possible so the player can join up with the team in Germany for the pre-season training camp in Bielefield.

Beşiktaş are also interested in Dyanmo Moscow defender Douglas, whether Rhodolfo’s imminent transfer means the club will close the books on Douglas is yet unclear.

Reports started to come in last night that the Black Eagles had shook hands with the powerful center back and that Beşiktaş continued to make a formal offer to his club uppon reaching a principle agreement with the player.
