According to well known Sky Italia reporter Gianluca Di Marzio, Besiktas are interested in 28-year old Italy and Cagliari defender Davide Astori who is currently playing on loan at A.S Roma this season.

if the reports are to be true Besiktas have already spoken to Astori’s agent to weigh up the player’s interest to moving abroad and playing in Turkey. The player as of now however does not look to eager to move abroad and remains focussed on the rest of this season with Roma. He remains convinced that he can establish himself in Rudi Garcia’s team. Roma reportedly have an option to buy Astori at the end of the season for €5.000.000, but it is unknown if AS Roma will decide to use this option.

Besiktas are also rumored to be interested in Roma’s Brazilian winger Marquinho who is currently on loan at Al-Ittihad. The Brazilian will return to the Italian capital at the end of the season, but his future seems to look away from Rome, and he could find himself playing in Turkey.
