Lucas Leiva could join Besiktas by the end of the week according to the football agent Ahmet Bulut.
Bulut – who represents Arda Turan – stated that the Liverpool man is close to a loan move to Besiktas.
“An agreement is yet to be reached however we should have an outcome within 24 hours,” Bulut told Radyospor.
“Talks are ongoing but a deal should be wrapped up by the end of tomorrow.”
Besiktas have made a loan offer for Liverpool midfielder Lucas Leiva according to NTV Spor. The Black Eagles are in need of a central midfielder following long-term injuries to Veli Kavlak and Tolgay Arslan.
The Serie A duo Inter Milan and Juventus are both in the race to sign the out-of-favour defensive midfielder according to Eurosport.
Lucas lost his place as Brendan Rodgers deep-lying midfielder after an injury plagued season and is expected to leave over the transfer window.
The Brazilian international made 32 appearances for Liverpool in all competitions last season.
