Besiktas are ready to make an official offer to sign Chelsea striker Loic Remy.
Turkish television station Lig TV reports that president Fikret Orman will soon be in London to hold talks with Chelsea about the potential signing of the player.
It is unlikely for the 29-year-old to enjoy regular first-team football at Stamford Bridge after the club signed Michy Batshuayi from Marseille on a five-year contract.
He always struggled for form since joining the Blues from Newcastle United in the 2014 summer transfer window.
Chelsea manager Antonio Conte is still chasing a new striker having failed to launch a winning bid to sign Real Madrid's Alvaro Morata.
In recent years, Remy was twice vocal about his situation at the club.
Immediately after signing for the club he made it clear that his objective was not to sit on the bench.
A year later he confessed that he was not happy to warm the bench and that it was a frustrating experience.
