Report: Besiktas inquire about Patric
The winter transfer market has opened and to initiate the news surrounding Lazio, is surprisingly Patric. Despite a renewal signed a few months ago that ties him to the club until 2022, the Spanish defender continues to be on the radar of several clubs; the latest to be interested is Turkish side Besiktas, who currently sits in the seventh spot in the Super Lig according to the Turkish CNN. Nine points off of first place, Besiktas are usually higher up the table then where they currently stand and will be hoping to bolster their side in January; taking Patric in January could be a potential first deal. An official offer has not yet arrived but in the thoughts of the leaders of Istanbul, there is the idea of starting a negotiation. Patric, now 25 years of age, has played in seven Serie A TIM matches – five of which have been starts. Looking for a starting role, a move away may be ideal especially considering he was not chosen to be a part of the Europa League squad and has recently upset fans.
