Besiktas have been linked with Cruzeiro’s right back Mayke Rocha de Oliveira.

The Black Eagles are in the market for a new right back after they failed to strengthen in the position during the summer transfer window.

Besiktas were forced into playing their young midfielder Necip Uysal at right back which contributed to a loss of points against Fenerbahce and Erciyesspor.

The latest right back to be linked with Besiktas is the 22-year-old Brazilian right back Mayke.

According to reports from Brazilian media, Besiktas have already held talks with Mayke and will table a loan bid to his club Cruzeiro.

The Brazilian club are reportedly not interested in selling their young star and have set a €2.5 million price tag on him.

Mayke has made nine assists and scored two goals in 49 appearances for Cruzeiro this season.
