Aras Özbiliz to sign with Beşiktaş: all the known details

Updated: January 20, 2016

Aras Özbiliz seems very close to a Beşiktaş move. Haber1903 is reporting that the Armenian international winger has reached an agreement on all terms with the Black Eagles and will come to Istanbul tomorrow at 12:45 (GMT+2) to sign a contract for 4,5 years after he passes his medical.

Özbiliz will be bought from Spartak Moscow for a fee of around € 3 million and will be directly loaned out to Spanish La Liga side Rayo Vallecano until the end of the season. Reason for this is because Gökhan Töre will most likely be sold at the end of the season. Özbiliz will have 6 months to get in good shape at a good level, La Liga, and he can immediately take Töre’s place when he is sold for a good transfer fee.

Özbiliz played in the youth academy of Ajax Amsterdam before getting in their first team. He played two seasons for the Dutch club, in which he had some very good games. His most memorable moment for them was when he scored the equalizer at Old Trafford against Manchester United in 2012. At the end of that season he was sold to Krasnodar, before moving to Spartak Moscow only one year later for a transfer fee of € 8 million. Beşiktaş have been following him for nearly two years now and it seems like he will finally make his transfer to the club.
