Yet Another Besiktas Superstar Scouted By Newcastle United: The Best They Can Get?

Besiktas’ players like Oguzhan Ozyakup and Cenk Tosun have stolen the limelight since the start of the current season and have made their club proud on the European stage. They have performed exceptionally well in the last few seasons as well, having attracted the attention of a number of clubs in the transfer market.

Another name has been added to the list, that of their German midfielder Tolgay Arslan. He has been one of the influential players for the Black Eagles this season apart from the likes of Ozyakup and Cenk Tosun and has also attracted interests from a number of Premier League clubs including Newcastle United.

The Magpies have struggled to put up a consistent show so far this season, given the lack of quality, they have in their side. Rafa Benitez is aware of the fact and is desperate to add some new players, helping stabilise the side in the near future.

He is also aware that to take on the big name clubs in the Premier League, Newcastle will need a strong squad. Complying to that, the Spanish mastermind is eyeing a number of top-class players from all over Europe and on the top of his target list is the name of the German midfielder Tolgay Arslan.

The Tyneside club is reportedly taking a significant amount of interest in the 27-year-old, who impressed in Besiktas’ last match in the Champions League against the Ligue 1 champions Monaco in their own backyard. As per sources, the Newcastle United scouts were there at the Vodafone Arena to monitor the player closely.

His impressive display has risen the possibility of a bid from Newcastle in the near future. However, the Tyneside club will face competition in their pursuit of the player as Crystal Palace are also hot on his heels.

The 27-year-old midfielder is known for his swift footwork and cool and composed mindset, which has helped him to become a key figure at Besiktas, since his arrival at the club in 2015. He has made his way into the first team through the ranks and has his current contract with the Black Eagles running till 2022.

Known for his ominous presence in the middle of the pitch and his ability to retain ball possession, Arslan might be a good inclusion to the Newcastle United side but is the right man for them?
