However, Turkish sources suggest the Istanbul club could be priced out of a deal, with professional football scout Berk Bekgoz (@BerkBekgoz) claiming: “Besiktas could not meet Wout Weghorst’s salary expectation at this stage. I don’t know what will happen next, but there is a difference.”
Weghorst, who arrived on deadline day in January from Wolfsburg after the departure of Chris Wood, signing for roughly half the £25m Newcastle paid for Wood, is currently with the Netherlands squad for the Nations League Group D opener against Belgium at the King Baudouin Stadium in Brussels – what was the Heysel Stadium – tonight, with kick-off at 7-45 p.m.
Louis van Gaal’s squad then have two games against Wales, in Cardiff on Wednesday, kick-off 7-45 p.m., and Rotterdam on Tuesday, June 14th (7-45 p.m.), with a home tie against Poland, again in Rotterdam, on Saturday, June 11th (7-45 p.m.).
