Turkish Giants Besiktas In Talks With Chidozie Awaziem

CD Leganes defender Chidozie Awaziem is reportedly attracting interest from the Turkish side, Besiktas.

According to reports, Awaziem who is currently on loan at Spanish La Liga side Leganes, is on the wishlist of the Turkish Super Lig club for next season.

The Super Eagles star had an impressive season with Caykur Rizespor, also of Turkey in early 2019 before he agreed on a switch to Leganes last summer.

Reports by Ajansspor claim Besiktas are already in talks with Awaziem’s representatives and are ready to get the deal over the line quickly.

Since signing for Porto in 2016, the Nigeria International has spent time on loan at three different clubs – Nantes, Caykur Rizespor, and CD Leganes since then.

Meanwhile, Chidozie Awaziem featured for Leganes in the game against Osasuna on Saturday.

The match ended 2 – 1 in favour of Osasuna, whereas Leganes are now edging closer to relegation to the lower division.
