According to TRT Spor, via Firat Gunayer, Besiktas president Fikret Orman will make a move to sign Huddersfield Town striker Steve Mounié on loan this summer.
Yesterday, we covered reports from Turkey which state that Orman was flying to England for talks with Everton strikers Oumar Niasse and Cenk Tosun as he looks to add a striker to the squad.
However, TRT Spor claim that he has a different target in mind and is instead trying to tie up a deal for Huddersfield’s Mounié instead.
The 24-year-old striker is expected to leave the Championship side following their relegation last season and TRT Spor say Orman is looking to secure a loan deal for him.
He’s already in talks with both club and the player, suggesting that a deal is quite far down the line at this point.

The Benin international joined Huddersfield from Montpellier in £9m deal back in 2017 and enjoyed a strong first season, scoring nine goals in 31 games in all competitions in a solid debut campaign.
However, his performances dropped significantly last season as he managed just two goals in 32 games in all competitions and Huddersfield were relegated to the Championship.
Mounié, who has also been linked with a move to Olympiacos this summer, has two years remaining on his current deal with the Terriers.
