Ridvan Yilmaz from Turkish champions Besiktas is the focus of the Bundesliga. According to information from SPOX and GOAL, Eintracht Frankfurt is particularly interested in the 20-year-old full-back.
The Hessians could soon approach Besiktas and Yilmaz with a concrete offer. The six-time Turkish national player’s contract with Besiktas runs until 2023.
While Yilmaz has established himself with the reigning Turkish champions and is regarded as one of the greatest talents in recent history, the club could envisage a sale in the summer, club sources say.
On the one hand, Besiktas wants to prevent losing Yilmaz on a free transfer in the summer. On the other hand, you obviously want to meet the player’s desire to change.
