Besiktas have made a bid for Tottenham striker Emmanuel Adebayor, according to the Turkish club's director Ahmet Piper.
The Togo international struggled for form in the Premier League last season, bagging just five goals in 25 appearances following his permanent £5million move from Manchester City.
He could now be offered a route to pastures new, with Piper claiming that they have tabled an offer for the former Arsenal man.
Piper told Turkish news outlet Fanatik: "It is certainly true that we are looking at the idea of a transfer. We have made a serious bid for Adebayor.
"That, in turn, has given us a figure for the player, which is slightly above the amount that we imagined.
"However, making a signing as big as this immediately is nothing but a dream.
"Negotiations always take a long time. I hope that we will get a chance to have a meeting soon."
