Ferencvaros midfielder Muhamed Besic could be set for a £4m move to Swansea City after his World Cup exploits.
Swansea City could be set to continue their summer spending, with the Daily Mail linking manager Garry Monk with a £4 million move for Bosnia & Herzegovina World Cup midfield star Muhamed Besic from Hungarian club Ferencvaros.
The 21 year-old played in each of his country’s three games at the 2014 FIFA World Cup, impressing many with his composed displays as the most defensively minded player in the Bosnian midfield, despite the fact that his side bowed out after the group stage due to a defeat to Nigeria.
The German-born midfielder started his career with Bundesliga club Hamburg, but made just three senior league appearances for the club before he was released and allowed to join Hungarian side Ferencvaros on a free transfer.
Besic has become one of the most impressive performers in the Hungarian league since, but the consensus now seems to be that he is ready to move on and have another crack at one of Europe’s major leagues.
The player is most comfortable in central midfield, where he is able to both break up play and contribute effectively to his team’s ability to move forward, but his versatility also allows him to operate relatively well in defence, something that may make his capture even more attractive for the Swans.
