Besiktas target Chelsea starlet Lucas Piazon
Beşiktaş are interested in the possibility of a loan move for Chelsea striker Lucas Piazón.
The Black Eagles are facing a striker shortage following the injury of Mustafa Pektemek and Batuhan Karadeniz struggling for match fitness. Hugo Almeida has excelled this season however, the Istanbul giants lack a viable alternative.
The club is estimated to be in debt to tune €80-€100 million, a problem chairman Fikret Orman has made his priority to resolve.
The Black Eagles have been forced to change their transfer policy which has suffered from years of mismanagement and over spending.
Beşiktaş have been attracting young talents recently with the promise of first team football.
The Eagles lured Arsenal youth Oğuzhan Özyakup in a surprise move this summer and have given the 20-year-old midfielder a regular starting position.
Piazon joined Chelsea from Sao Paulo for €7.5 million during the summer transfer window. The 18-year-old Brazilian striker has played once in the Premier League this season.
