Everton midfielder Muhamed Besic is reportedly in demand ahead of the summer transfer window.
The 26-year-old is currently out on loan with Championship club Middlesbrough, where he’s enjoyed regular first-team action at the Riverside.
According to the Daily Mail, Boro are hoping to re-sign him on a permanent basis at the end of the season.
It is understood that Turkish top-flight clubs Besiktas and Fenerbahce are also interested in a potential swoop for him.
The report details that the Bosnia international does not feature in plans at Goodison Park moving forward and it could take a deal of around £9million to take him away.
Everton boss Marco Silva decided not to keep Besic in his squad for this season and the outcast was shipped out on loan.
The Toffees paid £4million (Guardian) to sign the no-nonsense enforcer back in 2014 and it seems like they now want to make a £5million profit from his sale.
Besic has made 56 senior appearances in an Everton shirt, but it would be a major surprise to see him play again for them.
The central midfielder is a tough tackler and a rock in front of a defence, something he’s done effectively with promotion chasers Boro this campaign.
But unfortunately injuries have plagued his time in English football and that’s why his time on Merseyside is surely over.
He did look a real talent when he initially arrived and is extremely confident on the ball too, but making a sizeable profit from his sale in the summer would be decent business.
