Report: Besiktas go for Pedro

Besiktas are reportedly keen on signing out-of-favour Fiorentina striker Pedro next month.

According to La Nazione, Besiktas have presented the “most serious” proposal for Pedro so far.

The Turkish club has struggled for goals this season, continuing to rely on veteran and ex-Lecce target Burak Yilmaz.

The 22-year-old Brazilian only joined Fiorentina from Fluminense in September for €11m.

However, he has managed just four substitute appearances for the Viola in Serie A.

The newspaper adds he will not leave without a replacement, with Wolverhampton Wanderers’ Patrick Cutrone likeliest on loan with an option to buy.

Failing Cutrone, the Tuscan side could fork out for Milan hitman Krzysztof Piatek or Torino forward Simone Zaza.

Fiorentina go into the New Year new look, having recently replaced coach Vincenzo Montella with Beppe Iachini.
