SPORT: Besiktas prepare bid for Onyekuru

Turkish giants, Besiktas, are working on a deal to sign forward Henry Onyekuru on a permanent deal from Olympiacos.

He has also been linked a move to both Galatasaray and bitter city rivals Fenerbahce.

Onyekuru, who is looking to quit Olympiacos after a below-par campaign, is seen as an ideal replacement for Canada’s Cyle Larin, who rejected a new deal at the club and is poised to join Premier League newcomers Nottingham Forest this summer.

The Nigerian forward, who scored one goal in 27 league appearances for the Greek champions last season, is reportedly not in manager Pedro Martins’ plans for the upcoming season.

Meanwhile, our correspondent learnt that a huge transfer fee could be a stumbling block to any of his Turkish suitors as the reigning Greek champions demand for the same €4.5m paid to Monaco for Onyekuru last summer.

“A loan deal looks possible at the moment with an option to buy thereafter and this is because of the financial implications. His club (Olympiacos) will demand a huge fee for him because he still has three years left on his contract with them,” a close source stated.
