Porto are preparing to make a move for Besiktas’ out-of-favour centre-back Pedro Franco according to the Fanatik.

The report states that Porto have been monitoring Pedro Franco in recent months and that they are readying an official bid for the Colombian international.

Porto are expected to offer Daniel Opare – who is on loan at Besiktas from Porto – in a part-exchange deal for Pedro Franco.


The Colombian international lost his place in the starting line-up following a dispute with Slaven Bilic and could now be on his way out of the club.

Manchester City have also been linked with a move for the Besiktas centre back Pedro Franco by HaberTurk.
