Besiktas president Fikret Orman has revealed the Turkish club's desire to sign Liverpool misfit Mario Balotelli.
Orman is convinced the Italy international - who didn't travel will Jurgen Klopp's side for their pre-season tour - will be a good fit for Besiktas.
"Mario Balotelli is the type of footballer that our fans can associate themselves with," he told Turkish magazine Fanatik. "I'm pretty sure he would attract great attention.
"To be fair, if he wasn't deemed as a trouble-maker, he wouldn't be rumoured to be joining us.
"But we can show some effort and create solutions for Balotelli's infamous troubles. I think he can change with the attention and care he'll receive in Turkey.
"In short, we want Mario Balotelli and he wants us too."
