Dinamo Zagreb midfielder Marcelo Brozovic is close to a Besiktas move according to the newspaper Takvim.
Besiktas were reported to be in negotiations with Brozovic at the beginning on the month and had agreed personal terms with the 22-year-old.
However, the Black Eagles are unwilling to match Zagreb’s €7 million valuation and have proposed a €4 million offer which will be paid over a period of 24 months.
Former Croatia national team manager Bilic maintains strong ties with players and clubs back home and will try to use his influence to reach an agreement with Dinamo.
The 21-year-old has attracted the attention from around Europe and the Daily Mail reported that Arsenal are interested in making an offer for Brozovic.
Inter, AC Milan and Roma have also been linked with the former Lokomotiva player.
Brozovic is a versatile midfielder who can play as a deep-lying playmaker or as an attacking midfielder.
The Croatian international has made five assists and scored two goals in 22 games.
