Besiktas turn their attention towards Emil Krafth


Besiktas have turned their attentions towards the Swedish right back Emil Krafth after failing to secure the transfer of Maxi Lopez from Benfica.

According to the Turkish newspaper AMK, Besiktas have held talks with both Helsinborg and Krarth.

The Eagles manager Slaven Bilic has also given the green light to the 20-year-old.

However, the former Croatia national team manager has told the club that the young player may take a while to adapt to the Turkish Super League.

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

Midfielders Necip Uysal and Atiba Hutchinson have had to fill in as make shift right-backs from time to time this season.

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

Krafth made 30 appearances for Helsinborg last season.
