Lille in talks to sign Besiktas striker Burak Yilmaz

France Football report that Ligue 1 side Lille have entered into surprise talks with 35-year-old Turkish international striker Burak Yilmaz.

Lille Sporting Director Luis Campos is understood to have taken a trip to Istanbul to negotiate a possible transfer with Besiktas for a player under contract with them until June 2021.

The situation for Les Dogues could be an easier one owing to the fact that the Turkish outfit is facing financial difficulties and the striker is understood to have not received his wages consistently in 2020.

If Yilmaz joins, he would numerically replace Loïc Rémy in the squad, having scored 13 goals and provided 7 assists in the Turkish 1st division this season.
