Beşiktaş have renewed their interest in Younés Belhanda

Updated: June 11, 2016

According to Foot Mercato, Beşiktaş have made an offer to sign Younés Belhanda from Dynamo Kiev.

The former Montpellier man spent the second half of the 2015/16 campaign on loan at Schalke 04, he played a total of 813 Bundesliga minutes for ‘Die Köningsblauen’, making 8 starts and coming off the bench as a sub 7 more times. In these 15 games he managed to score twice and give one assist.

Torino, who also expressed interest this past Winter, have again shown their intention to sign Belhanda this Summer. But according to Foot Mercato’s sources, they aren’t the only ones as Turkish champions Beşiktaş have also made a bid for the 26 year old attacking midfielder.

Beşiktaş have tried multiple times to sign the Moroccon playmaker over the past two years but always found Kiev’s demands to be too high, perhaps the third time will prove the charm for the Black Eagles.

This renewed interest in Belhanda may hold a strong implication that José Sosa could be allowed to leave this Summer should a serious offer come in.
