Eastern interest for Beşiktaş stars

Updated: January 13, 2016

While the Besiktas board are searching for players to transfer this month, offers for the club’s own players are coming in as well. It is being reported that offers have been made for Ersan Adem Gülüm and José Ernesto Sosa.

According to NTV Spor, official offers around  € 5 million have been coming in for Sosa. The midfielder was an interesting target for several Argentinian clubs at the summer transfer window too.

Qatari club Al Gharafa even made an offer of € 7,5 million for José Sosa according to Radyospor. While Argentinian media are reporting that River Plate have made a $ 3 million bid aswell.

Meanwhile, the interest from Chinese clubs for Ersan continues. Just like with Sosa, offers were made for the defender during the summer, but Besiktas did not sell him. It is being reported that over the past week the Chinese have started contacting the board of the Black Eagles again. Lastly, they were willing to pay € 6 million for Ersan and offers have been announced to the Besiktas board.

All offers for both players have however been rejected. The ideal squad isn’t going to be broken up mid-season and the club is going to continue with both players.
