A source close to Besiktas revealed to Turkish-Football that both clubs have been scouting the in form striker.

Tosun scored the winning goal in the 1-0 win over Croatia in the last qualifier.

Trabzonspor striker Burak Yilmaz will provide additional firepower up front.

Barcelona winger Arda Turan will start out wide with Emre Belozoglu, Nuri Sahin and Oguzhan Ozyakup in midfield.

The defence will be comprised of Caner Erkin and Kaan as full-backs and Freiburg centre-back Caglar Soyuncu as well as Mehmet Topal as centre-backs.
