Caner Erkin (Turkish pronunciation: [d͡ʒaneɾ æɾcin], born 4 October 1988) is a Turkish professional footballer who plays as a left back for Süper Lig club Beşiktaş on loan from Italian club Internazionale, and the Turkey national team.
Erkin began his professional career at the start of the 2004–05 season with Manisaspor who at the time were playing in the Second Division. That season they won the league and got promoted to the Süper Lig. During his 1.5-year stay at Manisaspor in, he scored 5 goals in 39 games. In the January 2007 transfer window, he moved to CSKA Moscow, for a £3.5 million transfer fee. He has played a total of 40 games, 7 in the UEFA Champions League and also won the Russian Super Cup on two occasions. On 31 August 2009, Galatasaray signed Erkin on a one-year loan from CSKA Moscow with an option to purchase at the end of the season.
On 1 June 2016, Internazionale announced the signing of Erkin on a free transfer in a three-year deal commencing on 1 July.  Erkin is going to be the first summer transfer addition to the squad. Under Roberto Mancini and new coach Frank de Boer, Erkin made 7 appearances in pre-season friendlies. However, he did not make any competitive debut before leaving Inter on 30 August. Inter also ran out of players quota in 2016–17 UEFA Europa League, as the club was forced to reduce to 22-men squad (plus normal minimum requirement of homegrown and club-trained players) due to penalty of UEFA Financial Fair Play Regulations, thus Caner was sacrificed for other signings. Domestically, Inter had one quota left (plus another for an Inter-trained player), but left vacant.
Loan to Beşiktaş
On 30 August 2016, Internazionale announced that Erkin's one-year deal with his homeland club Beşiktaş as on loan.
