Besiktas make offer to sign Lyon full-back Rafael

Lyon full-back Rafael has been the subject of a failed transfer bid from the Istanbul club.

Turkish giants Besiktas have submitted a transfer offer to French side Lyon to sign right-back Rafael, according to L’Équipe.

The bid is understood to have been rejected, not at the level at which Olympique Lyon could be convinced to accept.

Les Gones are also considering their right-back situation more holistically at present, with Léo Dubois signing at the beginning of next month on a free transfer from Nantes.

The present situation leaves Lyon, along with Kenny Tete, with 3 right-backs, meaning that one of them will surely leave the club this summer.
