The newspaper claim on their website that the 40-cap Bosnian international, who was bought for a fee of £4million, is destined to leave Goodison Park at the end of the season, having spent the campaign on loan at Middlesbrough.
However, instead of remaining at the Riverside Stadium, it is stated that Super Lig giants Besiktas and Fenerbahce are keen on snapping up his signing for a fee in the region of £9million, meaning that the Toffees will make a healthy profit on his exit.
Besic has done really well in the Championship and it is a surprise to hear that there are not more English sides chasing his capture ahead of the summer window. He could certainly do a decent job for the majority of second tier sides and even maybe a lower half Premier League outfit. Still, a move to Turkey could prove to be lucrative and at Besiktas or Fenerbahce he would be joining a side battling it out at the top of the table rather than the bottom. For Everton to get over double the money they spent on bringing him to Merseyside would be impressive business too, for it is not often you see a player fail to make the grade and be sold on for more than what he arrived for. He will no doubt feel a little disappointed not to be handed more of an opportunity at Goodison but the stakes are so high that even good players do not make the grade. You have to be a special talent and Besic just did not show enough quality to warrant him staying on.
