Besiktas appear to have a genuine interest in signing Juventus right-back Stephan Lichtsteiner this summer.

According to the football transfer rumours in Italian Media (Football Italia), Besiktas will look to sign Juventus right-back Stephan Lichtsteiner.

The Switzerland international has joined Juventus from Lazio for a fee in the region of 10.5 million euros in July 2011. The 33-year-old has a valid contract with Juventus until June 2018.

Stephan Lichtsteiner has played 229 times for Juventus since signing from Lazio, scoring 15 goals and creating 28 assists in that time.

The 33-year-old is considered to be one of the best right-backs in Switzerland.
