Everton selling 26-year-old for seven-figure fee would be excellent business

Mo Besic

Earlier this week, reports from the Daily Mail claimed Fenerbahce and Besiktas were interesting in signing Everton midfielder Mo Besic this summer.

The Toffees must jump at the opportunity to finally offload the 26-year-old this summer, and will be hoping the Turkish clubs can offer a substantial fee for his services.

After arriving at Goodison Park back in 2014, Besic has only made a paltry 37 league appearances for Everton.

His uninspiring spell on Merseyside led to two consecutive loans to Middlesbrough, where the Bosnian international has attempted to propel the Championship side to promotion.

Yet with Besic unlikely to stay at Middlesbrough beyond this season, and with little chance of breaking through at Everton, a move away from Goodison Park appears to be a logical next step for the midfielder.

With two prominent Turkish clubs interested in the 26-year-old, Everton will be delighted at the chance to sell Besic, and see the departure of an underwhelming signing.

Signed for around £4 million in 2014, the Mail reported Everton are asking for £9 million this summer — an impressive profit that would represent excellent business for the Toffees.
