Turkish news handle, milliyet revealed that Besiktas are in dare need of an experienced defender as stop gap for Francisco Montero who returned to Atletico Madrid and Awaziem turned out to be the best option.

At this juncture, Besiktas eggheads have stepped up their negotiations with former Nantes and Leganese loanee over what he would earn at the club. Milliyet revealed that Awaziem could join the Black and White if both parties reach financial agreement.
