Leicester City are one of several sides monitoring Beşiktaş defender Rıdvan Yılmaz.

The 20-year-old came up through the ranks of the Turkish club’s youth system before he found his way into their first team in 2019.

Operating mainly as the left-back, he made 23 league appearances this season, managing three goals and four assists in the process. Yılmaz’s last assist came in his side’s 4-1 win over Alanyaspor at the weekend.

According to TGRT Haber, Leicester, Torino and VfB Stuttgart representatives watched the fullback in action in the Black Eagles’ last tie.

The aforementioned three clubs ‘will compete with each other’ for his signature in the next window. One of these sides have made the highest bid of €6m for the player, but Beşiktaş expects a fee of around €10m to part ways with the Turkey international.

Yılmaz received offers to leave the Istanbul club last summer, but he decided to stay put to play in the Champions League this season.

The report states things would be different at the end of this campaign. They further add he ‘wants to go’ to England. The left-back favouring a move to the Premier League would come as a boost for Brendan Rodgers’ side.

It remains to seen whether or not Leicester will offer €10m to Beşiktaş to sign Yılmaz in the next window.
