A report from Examiner Live has claimed that Huddersfield Town striker Steve Mounie is on the radar of Turkish giants Besiktas, who are said keen on bringing the 29-year-old in on loan before the end of the transfer window.

While the window for Championship clubs has closed, sides from Europe are still able to do transfer business and players from the English second tier are able to make moves away. One club looking to target the Championship is Turkish Super Lig side Besiktas, and they have a new striker on their shopping list.

Besiktas are said to have identified Huddersfield Town striker Steve Mounie as a potential striker target. Mounie has been linked with a move away from the John Smith’s Stadium over the course of the summer transfer window, with a move to the Premier League rumoured earlier this summer.

Upon their relegation to the Championship, Mounie was among the bigger earners said to be likely to leave, and with Besiktas now lurking, he could follow the likes of Mathias Jorgensen, Aaron Mooy and Philip Billing through the exit door at Huddersfield Town.

Besiktas are keen to talk to the club over a possible loan deal for Mounie with their transfer window closing at the end of the month.

Mounie joined Huddersfield in the summer of 2017 and has played 65 times for the Terriers since making the move, scoring 11 goals and providing five assists in the process. He has made two substitute appearances since their relegation to the Championship and it awaits to be seen if he will be adding to that total.
