The transfer saga regarding Rachid Ghezzal looks close to finalized. Besiktas has been interested in a buy since Ghezzal left last season after a largely huge success on loan, seeing him as the star player in a season which Besiktas won the league.
The fee is said to be as low as €3million, but again better to get something that letting the player go on free when his contract runs out next summer. Ghezzal joined Leicester from Monaco back in 2018. Leicester paid a fee of €14million for the Algerian international.
Ghezzal has since he joined Leicester played 19 league games and scored one single goal, he has during his years at the club been loaned out to Fiorentina also and during the transfer chase for his signature, it was reported that Galatasaray were close to hijacking the deal with a number of Serie A clubs also looking at him, but now is all previous stuff that is of no interest with a move to Besiktas to be confirmed imminent.Embed from Getty Images
