Besiktas are interested in landing Chelsea attacker Lucas Piazon before the transfer market closes in Turkey at the end of August, beIN SPORTS Turkey exclusively reports.
The Turkish heavyweights are still in the market for a forward and they’ve also been connected with Schalke’s Yevhen Konoplyanka and Southampton’s Mohamed Elyounoussi in the latest weeks.
It’s reported the 25-year-old Brazilian is keen to continue his professional career at Kara Kartallar and will accept the move if the Super Lig outfit can reach an agreement with the Blues.
Piazon spent last campaign on loan at Serie A outfit Chievo Verona and it seems he is not in the plans of new Chelsea manager Frank Lampard.
The Brazilian was not involved for the defeat to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Manchester United and will need to find a team which can give him minutes.
In spite of being with the EPL side since 2012, the former Sao Paulo ace has only managed to make three senior matches for Chelsea and has just 12 months left on his current contract at Stamford Bridge.
