Turkish football heavyweights Beşiktaş signed Chilean defender Enzo Roco and Turkish striker Umut Nayir on July 27.

Istanbul's Beşiktaş announced their new signing Roco on the club's website, including a photo of him in a Beşiktaş jersey.

Born in 1992 in Chile, Roco previously played for Chile's CD Universidad Catolica, Spanish teams Elche and Espanyol, and Mexican club Cruz Azul.

Chilean international Roco, 25, won the Copa America title with Chile in 2016.

Last season he scored two goals in 31 appearances at Cruz Azul.

The Black Eagles also welcomed 25-year-old forward Nayir, announcing that the player signed a deal with the club.

Nayir, who scored 14 goals with newly-promoted Ankara team Ankaragücü, also sweated Osmanlıspor, Yeni Malatyaspor and Göztepe jerseys throughout his young career.
