Muhamed Besic’s Everton hell could finally be coming to an end this summer with Besiktas and Fenerbahce looking to sign the defensive-midfielder. The 26-year-old has fallen down the pecking order under Marco Silva and finds himself on the periphery as a result.

The Sun says Besic has an asking price of £9m which would land Everton 225% profit on the £4m they spent to sign him from Ferencvaros in 2014. The Bosnia-Herzegovina international reportedly earns £1.6m-a-year/£30k-per-week at Goodison Park.

Besic is regarded as an Everton flop, but he’s been in better form while on loan at Middlesbrough which could lead to more interest in the summer transfer window. The Toffees aren’t short of money, but the midfielder’s sale could go towards transfer funds for replacements.

In addition to Besic, Everton could lose Idrissa Gueye at the end of the season too. The ball-winner has been linked with Manchester United and handed in a transfer request amid Paris Saint-Germain interest in January. The Blues are trying to turn Andre Gomes’ loan move permanent as a result.

It’s clear Besic has no future so he’ll be allowed to leave. Whether he’ll join one of the Turkish Super Lig sides remains to be seen, however.
