Jose Sosa, one of the key players of Besiktas’ Champion Team last season, is off to AC Milan in a deal believed to be worth around €7.5M.
And Besiktas wants to replace him of course, but it’s quite a challenge for them. Gokhan Inler wants to leave Leicester City to keep his Switzerland career alive and Besiktas are willing to offer him that chance.
Besiktas boss Senol Gunes thinks it’s hard to find a direct replacement for Jose Sosa and he wants to move former Arsenal player Oguzhan Ozyakup from a midfield position to the number 10 role and wants Gokhan Inler to fill the void in midfield left by Oguzhan.
Inler is an ideal midfield playmaker and considering he’s 32 years of age, it would be a reasonable priced one for Besiktas. Gokhan Inler’s agent Dino Lamberti was approached by AMK, but didn’t want to comment either way.
Inler made only 5 first-team appearances for Leicester City last season and things don’t look likely changing hugely.
