Besiktas join Everton in the race to sign international star

Besiktas have joined the race to sign Fenerbahce’s Caner Erkin according to the players agent.

Liverpool and Everton are also in the race to sign Erkin according to the Express newspaper.

“Fenerbahce and Besiktas are discussing a move and I don’t want to be an obstacle. We are ready to talk,” Erkin’s agent Batur Altiparmak revealed.

“There are other clubs interested in him and we will have to see what is going to happen in the future.”

The Turkish international has attracted interest from across Europe and could be available on a free-transfer in the summer if Fenerbahce fail to sign a contract extension deal.

Erkin has eight assists and one goal in 27 appearances for Fenerbahce this season.

Fenerbahce take on their bitter rivals Galatasaray in the Turkish Super Lig this weekend.

The Yellow Canaries are three points behind leaders Besiktas and are seven points ahead of Konyaspor who sit in third.
