Besiktas looking to loan Rick Karsdorp

Besiktas are showing strong interest in Rick Karsdorp.

According to a report from Calciomercato, Besiktas are looking to loan Roma full-back Rick Karsdorp.

The Netherlands international joined Roma from Feyenoord for a fee in the region of 14 million euros in July 2017. His contract expires in the summer of 2022.

The 23-year-old is considered to be one of the best full-backs in Netherlands.

Rick Karsdorp has represented Netherlands at Under-18, Under-19, Under-20 and Under-21 level, winning 12 caps and scoring two goals, before making his senior international debut in October 2016. As a member of Netherlands national football team, Karsdorp won three caps.

Adding a full-back remains Besiktas’s top priority this summer and Şenol Güneş will have drafted a shortlist of a number of possible targets he could approach in the coming weeks.

The report claims that Besiktas manager has extensively scouted Rick Karsdorp and is considering a move for the full-back.

Besiktas will be desperate to make an impact in the summer transfer window.

According to Calciomercato (via Fotospor), “Turkish outlet Fotospor can reveal that Besiktas officials arrived in Roma to hold talks regarding a possible move for Karsdorp. It was earlier believed that the officials wanted to hold talks regarding a move for Anderson Talisca, but a deal for Karsdorp is close and the Dutchman could move on loan to Besiktas in the summer. The deal will be announced in around June, but Roma will be willing to hand the Turkish side a player that Monchi likes.”


Stylistically, he would be a great fit in Besiktas.

How strong that interest is and whether Besiktas will make a move remains to be seen but it is certainly one worth keeping an eye on.
