Aras Ozbiliz seems very close to a Besiktas move, Besiktas International reports, quoting Haber1903.
According to the report, the Armenian international winger has reached an agreement on all terms with the Black Eagles and will arrive in Istanbul today to sign a contract for 4,5 years after he passes his medical.
Ozbiliz will be bought from Spartak Moscow for a fee of around € 3 million and will be directly loaned out to Spanish La Liga side Rayo Vallecano until the end of the season. Reason for this is because Gökhan Töre will most likely be sold at the end of the season. Özbiliz will have 6 months to get in good shape at a good level, La Liga, and he can immediately take Töre’s place when he is sold for a good transfer fee.
Ozbiliz played in the youth academy of Ajax Amsterdam before getting in their first team. He played two seasons for the Dutch club, in which he had some very good games. His most memorable moment for them was when he scored the equalizer at Old Trafford against Manchester United in 2012. At the end of that season he was sold to Krasnodar, before moving to Spartak Moscow only one year later for a transfer fee of € 8 million. Besiktas have been following him for nearly two years now and it seems like he will finally make his transfer to the club.
