West Brom manager Tony Pulis is interested in Besiktas’ 22 year old winger Kerim Frei, reveals Turkey’s Milliyet.
The Baggies currently sit 11th in the Premier League table, having won 3 of their opening 11 matches, and will likely look to add in the winter transfer window.
Winning 5 caps for Turkey so far, Kerim Frei started his career at Grasshopers before he earned a move to Fulham.
Born in Austria, Kerim was brought up in Switzerland and played for them at U16, U17, U19 and U21 levels but eventually made a switch to the Turkish national team.
The 22-year old was expected to achieve good things at Besiktas but things have gone wrong for him in Turkey. Struggling to get game time this season because the coach Senol Gunes prefers Ricardo Quaresma and Olcay Şahan on the wings, it’s probably the best decision for Kerim to leave.
Kerim made 23 appearances for Fulham before he moved to Besiktas and a few eyebrows were raised at Craven Cottage after club’s decision to sell him because the fans believed he could be a very good player.
Now the footballer wants to return to England to continue his development. A fast and tricky winger, he’s also drawing interest from David Moyes’ Sunderland and current Turkish League leaders Medipol Başakşehir.
