Turkish website Fotospor claim Leeds United are making unofficial enquiries to sign Besiktas winger Jeremain Lens.
The Championship side have been linked with the Dutchman ever since they watched the Istanbul club two weeks. However, there were reports Lens wasn’t on their agenda during the game with Sarpsborg 08, but rather the home team’s goalkeeper.
Fotospor today report Leeds United have enquired about Lens’ price tag to Besiktas, via agents, but club president Fikret Orman has said they will only talk about the attacker’s value once the Elland Road side have made an official offer for their player, which is now awaited.
Once Leeds United submit an offer and get an answer from Super Lig club then official transfer talks can commence. This sounds very much like any first offer would be rejected and used as a starting basis for negotiations.
It’s been previously claimed in the Turkish media that Leeds are looking to loan Lens from Besiktas with an option to buy.
Due to FFP rules, Besiktas are looking to sell their players and the English club may have a decent chance landing Lens in the next window if they’d prepared to go for a permanent deal.
Lens has made 18 appearances for Besiktas this season, scoring 5 goals.
