Having already added a right-back, left-back, centre-back, left winger and attacking midfielder to their squad this summer, Besiktas are now also looking for a striker.

They have until the Turkish transfer window shuts at the end of this month to do a deal and, according to Hurriyet, have set their sights on Crystal Palace’s Christian Benteke.

The Belgian striker has also been linked with a move to Fenerbahce but the outlet claim Besiktas manager Abdullah Avci has identified him as a target as he is keen to bolster his attacking options.

The Turkish club only have one recognised striker in Burak Yilmaz in the squad as the club’s other attacker, Guven Yalcin, is reportedly struggling to adapt to Avci’s style of football.

The manager wants to add another option to his team as a result and that has seemingly caused him to turn his attention to the Belgium international.

Hurriyet say Besiktas are targeting a loan deal for the 28-year-old rather than a permanent one, but it isn’t mentioned how Palace would view such a proposal.

If Palace are unwilling to do business, Besiktas have an alternative, with the newspaper reporting they are also interested in signing Amiens’ Pape Moussa Konaté.
