Simao: On the move
Turkish giants Besiktas have lined up a triple Portuguese swoop for January.
Deals for Manuel Fernandes, Simao Sabrosa and Hugo Almeida are all understood to be close to being finalised.
Fernandes is already believed to be in Istanbul after being given permission to travel by his club Valencia.
Besiktas also informed Turkey's stock market that they were in advanced talks with Atletico Madrid and Werder Bremen over deals for Simao and Almeida respectively.
The trio, if they finalise their moves, will join fellow countryman Ricardo Quaresma who moved to the Inonu Stadium from Inter Milan over the summer.
