Vagner Love has made the move to Besiktas from Alanyaspor alongside Orlando City’s Cyle Larin, in what looks set to be a key double swoop for the Istanbul-based side.
The Brazilian striker, who scored 34 goals in 44 games for Alanyaspor, will reportedly move to Besiktas on a 1.5-year contract with an optional 1-year extension, which could be activated should he play more than 25 games for the club. The transfer fee to bring Love was €3.7m, with €2.525 million being paid in wages across the next 1.5 years.
Larin, on the other hand, will earn €1.6m a season and will move on a 4-year deal for a fee worth €1.85 million. This is Larin’s first move outside of North America, where he spent his time with semi-professional Sigma Club before moving to Orlando City in 2015.
