Former Barcelona midfielder Alen Halilovic set for Besiktas

Former Barcelona midfielder Alen Halilovic is set to join Turkish giants Besiktas from Milan on a permanent deal, according to reports.

Sky Sport Italia say the player’s agent is Istanbul to agree personal terms with an agreement between the two clubs imminent.

The 22-year-old has only played a total of 60 minutes for the Rossoneri, with all coming in the Europa League and not featuring in Serie A once.

The Croat only joined the Milanese giants from German club HSV this summer, having previously enjoyed loan stints at Las Palmas and Sporting Gijon.

Halilovic joined Barca in 2014 from Dinamo Zagreb but made only one appearance for the club – coming in the Copa del Rey.
