Lucas Leiva could join Besiktas by the end of the week according to the football agent Ahmet Bulut.
“An agreement is yet to be reached however we should have an outcome within 24 hours,” Bulut told Radyospor.
“Talks are ongoing but a deal should be wrapped up by the end of tomorrow.”
Besiktas have made a loan offer for Liverpool midfielder Lucas Leiva according to NTV Spor. The Black Eagles are in need of a central midfielder following long-term injuries to Veli Kavlak and Tolgay Arslan.
The Serie A duo Inter Milan and Juventus are both in the race to sign the out-of-favour defensive midfielder according to Eurosport.
Lucas lost his place as Brendan Rodgers deep-lying midfielder after an injury plagued season and is expected to leave over the transfer window.
The Brazilian international made 32 appearances for Liverpool in all competitions last season.
