Chelsea rival Newcastle for Besiktas star Tolgay Arslan

Besiktas star Tolgay Arslan is attracting interest from Newcastle United and Chelsea.

The Evening Chronicle says the Magpies have made an inquiry for the 27-year-old central midfielder - although they could face summer competition from Chelsea.

Born in Germany, Arslan graduated from Borussia Dortmund's academy before enjoying spells with Alemannia Aachen and Hamburg.

He joined Besiktas in 2015 and although he is a former Germany under-21 international, he is eligible to play for Turkey as well.
