Leicester City’s Rachid Ghezzal is shining on loan at Beşiktaş this season, with the Foxes owned player deployed mostly on the right-wing position, having contributed with two goals and 13 assists in 22 league matches.
Unsurprisingly, these impressive numbers have convinced the Turkish club to make his stay permanent in the summer.
On March 24th, we carried a report from Takvim, who explained Brendan Rodgers’ side are demanding €8m to cut ties with the 28-year-old and are ‘not ready to offer discount’, even though his contract is until 2022.
Sabah now explain the Algeria international has convinced the Istanbul based club and is making their management ‘smile’ with his performances. Therefore, Beşiktaş want to retain him beyond his loan spell.
It’s claimed Leicester have ‘opened the door’ for their winger to leave for €7m, but Beşiktaş haven’t reached these figures and want to ‘find the middle ground’ by adding €2m to their first offer they made.
Sabah doesn’t provide details of the first offer, but considering Beşiktaş want to find the middle ground [€3.5m] by adding €2m, one could assume their first proposal might have been in the €1.5-2m range.
