Turkish newspaper Aksam report Leeds United could make an offer to Besiktas for their forward Cyle Larin.

The Championship leaders have been strongly linked with a move for the Canadian striker in recent months, and Aksam claim they could ‘knock on Besiktas’ door’ with an official offer.

Previous reports in the Turkish press said Leeds United had a deal in place with Zulte Waregem, where Larin spent the season on loan. However, due to the Covid-19 outbreak the Belgian side didn’t redeem the player from Besiktas, and subsequently the plan to sell him to the Championship side, after signing him on a permanent deal, never happened.

Larin has now returned to Istanbul but it’s unlikely that he’ll be in the plans of Sergen Yalcin for next season.

It’s claimed Leeds United are big fans of the player and could offer €2.2m, which is likely to be accepted by the Besiktas board.

The Super Lig club are in financial trouble and earlier reports said Larin is one of the players they will consider selling this summer.
