International Break: Rumour Mill is spinning

Updated: November 12, 2015

The ball has barely stopped rolling in the Süper Lig due to the International break, but rumours about possible winter signings are already spreading. We present you a small summery of the latest rumours that turkish media published.


Ospina, David; 27; GK; Arsenal London; Nationality: Colombia; Contract expiration: 30.06.2019

The goalkeeper was already linked with a possible Beşiktaş move this past summer. After Arsenal signed Petr Cech, Ospina lost his last chance to become Arsenal’s “number one.” It is expected that the ambitious goalkeeper will leave the club.

Ramirez, Fabricio (Fabri); 27; GK; Deportivo La Coruna; Nationality: Spain; Contract expiration: 30.06.2016

The goalkeeper was also linked to Beşiktaş last summer. José Sambade, Beşiktaş’ goalkeeper trainer, suggested this player to the board. Fabri has however been missing from his team due to a knee injury since last summer and his comeback is still questionable.

N’Koulou, Nicolas; 25; CB; Olympique Marseille; Nationality: Cameroon; Contract expiration: 30.06.2015

N’Koulou is playing his 5th season for L’OM and his contract expires next summer. He has a record of over 200 Ligue 1 appearances.

Silva, Douglas; 25; CB; Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk; Nationality: Brazil; Contract expiration: 31.12.2017

Another player that was linked already last summer to the black eagles. The 1,90m tall center back could build a Brazilian tandem together with Luiz Rhodolfo.

Lawal, Raheem; 25; CM; Eskişehirspor; Nationality: Nigeria; Contract expiration: 30.06.2017

Lawal himself claimed to be in negotiations with Beşiktaş. The club denied this in an official statement published on their homepage. This incident caused a suspension to Lawal by his club Eskişehirspor.

Fernandez, Matias; 29; CAM/CM; ACF Fiorentina; Nationality: Chile; Contract expiration: 30.06.2016

The player was signed in the summer of 2012 by Fiorentina and performed since than in a total of 82 Serie A matches in which he managed to score 6 goals and provide 20 assists. It is rumoured that he would be a replacement for a potential departure by José Sosa.

Özbiliz, Aras; 25; LW/RW; Spartak Moscow; Nationality: Armenia; Contract expiration: 30.06.2018

The Winger, born in Istanbul, was trained in the youth academy of Ajax Amsterdam and left the club in August 2012. After a cruciate ligament fracture suffered last season, he has struggled in finding his form so far.
