€40m Chelsea & Crystal Palace Target Has Chance To Score In 4th Consecutive Game After Being Given Start For Reigning Turkish Champions

Besiktas take on Sivasspor at the Yeni 4 Eylul Stadium on Saturday hoping to win back to back league games for the first time this month.

The Black Eagles head into the clash in 4th place just three points behind Basaksehir.

Besiktas have no injury issues or suspensions heading into the game.

Pepe, Talisca and Ryan Babel will however, have to be careful as they will pick up an automatic suspension if they are booked against Sivasspor.

Cenk Tosun will score for his fourth consecutive league game if he is given playing time against Sivasspor.

Tosun will start off the bench as he has been rested in favour of Alvaro Negredo.

The Turkish international has attracted widespread interest after scoring 13 goals including four in the Champions League as well as two assists.

Crystal Palace are keeping tabs on Tosun, Roy Hodgson has confirmed.


“I know him, he plays in the Champions League,” Hodgson was quoted as saying by Sky Sports.

“The club have watched him, yes. I don’t think there’s been any further contact between the clubs, I’d be surprised if that’s the case.”

Chelsea have also been scouting the forward according to Besiktas club secretary Ahmet Urkmezgil.

“We have no plans to sell Cenk Tosun, will this be the case in the future? that we don’t know, it may chance,” Cebi said.

“Our current stance is clear, we want Cenk to stay on.”

Besiktas now value their star man as being worth €40 million.
