We were linked with Besiktas midfielder Dorukhan Tokoz late last month. After Turkey’s shocking 2-0 win over World Cup Champions France last night, Tokoz is getting a lot of attention.
Apparently, Tokoz was immense for Turkey and bossed the French midfield of Paul Pogba, Blaise Matuidi, and former Newcastle United player Moussa Sissoko.
The player has really come on this past season. Having just joined Besiktas from fellow Turkish side Eskisehirspor in the summer for only €750K, he is now valued at a whopping €20M
It looks like both Newcastle and West Ham are the two English clubs who are most keen on the 23-year old.
This past January Serie A side Genoa, trying to spend some of that Krzysztof Piatek money, had two bids of €6M and €8M for Tokoz rejected.
After a performance like last night, we may see his value rise even more drastically in the coming weeks.
Below are some tweets about Tokoz’s display against France:
?? Just a reminder that Be?ikta? signed Dorukhan Toköz for just €135k last summer
He was playing against Paul Pogba, Matuidi and Sissoko who have a combined transfer value of £148.5m
