Besiktas to have another go at signing Obi Mikel

It is not the first time Besiktas have shown interest in signing the midfielder John Obi Mikel and in this transfer window, they will try to persuade the ex-Chelsea man to join them in Istanbul.

Obi Mikel spent the large part of his career at Chelsea where he was important and achieved great success with the Blues, but at the age of 30 he went to Asian football. 

After two seasons at Tianjin Teda, Obi Mikel returned to England to play for Middlesbrough. His contract at the club has now expired. 

The midfielder now has various options at 32, since he is now too old to join a big European club

According to 'BeIn Sports', Besiktas are going to try and persuade Obi Mikel again as he is a free agent and so they could get him for nothing

Besiktas have decided to first try and sign free agents before making bids for other footballers.
