Now reported Newcastle United are considering summer move for Dorukhan Tokoz
Newcastle United have been scouting Dorukhan Tokoz and are considering a move for him in the summer, according to reports on Wednesday.
The midfielder has impressed Newcastle according to Takvim.
The Turkish media organisation claiming that a bid could follow.
Dorukhan Tokoz turns 23 later this month and has caught the eye of a number of clubs with is performances.
Serie A clubs and West Ham are also reported to be watching the Besiktas midfielder.
This is his first season in the Turkish top tier after his contract ended at Eskisehirspor last summer and he joined Besiktas.
Starting the season on the bench, it was the end of November when the central midfielder got his first start and he has been first choice ever since.
Such has been his form, in March the midfielder made his senior international debut, featuring in wins over Moldova and Albania.
The player signed a three year contract when joining Besiktas last summer and it could be a quick profit for the club.
The Turkish club are struggling financially and may have no choice but to sell assets such as Dorukhan Tokoz.
They are currently third in the table and only the top side goes straight into the Champions League group stage, with the second only going into the third qualifying round. As for third, that only gets you into the Europa League.
Obviously the usual caution with any transfer story, especially from the Turkish media, who have had an abysmal strike rate with Newcastle United transfer stories/speculation.
