It is understood that Trabzonspor have made contact with Feyenoord about the possibility of acquiring the winger. However, it is not known if Feyenoord are looking to offload the midfielder and whether the player would be interested in the move.

Basacikoglu moved to Feyenoord from Heerenveen in 2014 for around €3 million and made forty-one appearances this season scoring four goals. Despite the increase in playing time his market value has decreased to currently around €2 million. Basacikoglu is under contract until 2018 with the option for an additional year, so Feyenoord are under no pressure to sell.
