Besiktas press for Joao Mario?

Besiktas have reportedly stepped up their efforts to sign Inter outcast Joao Mario.

Gazzetta dello Sport cites reports in the Turkish Press, which claim Besiktas’ pressing for Joao Mario has become ‘insistent over the last few hours’.

The newspaper explains Pepe has also tried to convince his Portugal teammate to link up with him in Istanbul.

The Turkish transfer window has two more days to run, while the 25-year-old seems surplus to requirements at Inter, despite being called up for their 2-2 draw with Torino last weekend.
