There is a report in Fotomac that one of Newcastle’s top transfer targets over the past year is now linked to Turkish club Besiktas.
Nikola Vlasic’s name has been doing the rounds since it was reported that he wanted a permanent move away from Goodison Park.
The latest report from Fotomac claims that the Turkish club is looking for a replacement for loanee Shinji Kagawa.
The report says that they are about to begin negotiations with Everton over the player. However, they appear to only willing to sanction a loan deal for the Croatian.
This is a common theme in regards to Vlasic as it was reported on Friday that Italian clubs Roma, Napoli, and Lazio were only interested in loan deals for the 21-year old.
Nikola Vlasic– could he be joining Besiktas?
However, Newcastle’s link with Vlasic still appears to be the strongest. As we reportedly want the attacking midfielder permanently and not on loan.
With our club stuck on a razor’s edge at the moment between glory and disaster, we run the risk of losing out on our top targets.
We hope the club can get their future sorted out and quickly. If not for the club’s sake then for the sake of our hyper-anxious fans.
