Club President Arrives In London For Arsenal Talks Over Olivier Giroud
Besiktas president Fikret Orman arrived in London yesterday for several rounds of transfer talks.
Orman confirmed he will hold talks with Everton over Cenk Tosun but that he will also enter negotiations about signing additional players.
A source close to the Black Eagles revealed to Turkish-Football that the Besiktas delegation are set for talks over Arsenal striker Cenk Tosun and Leicester City forward Islam Slimani.
The reigning Super Lig champions will be seeking a replacement for Tosun should he complete his move to Everton.
The Turkey international is nearing a £27 million move to the Toffees.
Tosun is expected to join Everton over the 24 hours leaving Besiktas with two available first team strikers Alvaro Negredo and Mustafa Pektemek.
The Istanbul giants have made signing a striker a priority.
Besiktas will take on Bayern Munich in the Champions League Last 16 and are still involved in the Super Lig title race.
The Daily Mail recently reported that Giroud’s agent will hold crunch talks with Arsenal over the future of the France international.
Per the source, the powerful striker is aware his lack of playing time could hold him back from starting for France in the World Cup in Russia this summer.
The France international has started just one of the 15 Premier League fixtures he has been involved in this season.
