Besiktas are a step ahead of Leicester City in the race to sign Gokhan Inler according to the Turkish Super League broadcaster LigTV.
The report states that the Switzerland international is keen on a move to Besiktas over Leicester and that the Istanbul Giants have made a €4 million transfer bid to Napoli.
Leicester City are also close to completing the transfer of Inler from Napoli according to La Gazzetta dello Sport.
Leicester’s newly appointed manager Claudio Ranieri revealed earlier this week that he was close to securing a replacement for Esteban Cambiasso.
The Argentinian international recently confirmed that he will leave Leicester according to the BBC. The former Inter Milan player released a statement saying that he will not renew his current deal with the Foxes.
Inler scored one goal in 33 appearances for Napoli in all competitions last season.
Leicester pulled off the ‘great-escape’ last season to beat the drop. The foxes ended the season in 14th place with 41 points.
