Besiktas say they are confident that Inter defender-midfielder Gary Medel will join them “soon”.
Besiktas reportedly agreed terms with Medel without negotiating a fee for his arrival last week, but the Turkish champions’ sporting director believes a deal is in the pipeline.
“We hope to close the deal soon,” Erdal Torunogullari told El Mercurio.
“We know how important Medel is for the Chilean national team, and we’ve seen the great campaigns he’s had with Inter.
“Medel is a player that interests us a lot.”
