Iran’s Ansarifard Linked with Besiktas
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Turkish Super League football team Besiktas has shown interest in signing Iran international striker Karim Ansarifard.
Ansarifard scored 17 goals for Olympiacos in the Greek league last season and has already said the team is his home but after his worthy performance in the 2018 World Cup he will likely join another team in the summer transfer window.
Ansarifard scored Iran’s only goal in the World Cup from the penalty spot in the match against Portugal.
Now, Besiktas president Fikret Orman has expressed his satisfaction to sign the 28-year-old striker.
Another Turkish giant Fenerbahce also wants to hire Ansarifard.
The Eredivisie teams Heerenveen and Utrecht had previously shown interest in signing the former Osasuna player.
