Everton & Liverpool Request Transfer Meeting Over World Cup Finalist Target, Club Demand €30m

Besiktas defender Domagoj Vida continues to be linked with a move to the Premier League.

The Sabah newspaper claim that the Black Eagles have received an €20m bid but have set a €30m valuation.

Per the source, Everton, Liverpool and Leicester City have requested a transfer meeting with Besiktas regarding the powerful centre-back.

Vida has attracted growing interest following an impressive run of form in the World Cup playing an important role in Croatia reaching the final.

The 29-year-old has starred as Dejan Lovren’s centre-back partner.

The Besiktas ace has started every game for Croatia in the tournament, scoring in the quarter-finals against Russia in extra-time and the ensuing penalty shootout.

The defender also put on an impressive display against England in the semi-final.

Vida made the highest number of successful interceptions (4) and the most clearances (8) for Croatia against England.

The Turkish media have been reporting wildly differing figures regarding Vida’s valuation recently, ranging from €15-35m.

Turkish-Football contacted Besiktas regarding Vida’s situation, the club confirmed they have received offers but that they cannot disclose the figures.

Besiktas have made it clear they will wait until after the World Cup before making a final decision on the future of their star man.

Black Eagles club president Fikret Orman will attend the World Cup final on Sunday in Russia.

The centre-back joined the Super Lig outfit on a free transfer from Dynamo Kiev in January and has another four-years remaining on his contract.
