Beşiktaş target Maxi Pereira is expected to extend his contract with Benfica according to A Bola.

Pereira is reported to have agreed to a one-year extension.

Beşiktaş vice-president Ahmet Nur Çebi recently revealed that they are interested in the Uruguayan international.

“Our first choice is Maxi Pereira,” Çebi said.

“However, there are a lot of clubs interested in him. We are also targetting Linnes.” 

The Black Eagles have played much of the season without a right-back due to injuries and a lack of depth.

Beşiktaş have also been linked with Sporting’s Junior Caiçara, Dinamo Zagreb’s Ivo Pinto, Cruzeiro’s Mayke and Udinese’s Cameroon international Nyom.
