Chelsea’s 29-year old striker Demba Ba is wanted by Turkish side Besiktas, reports the Daily Mail.
Ba has made no secret of the fact he wants out of Chelsea after being ignored time and again by his boss Jose Mourinho, and Besiktas want to take advantage of the unrest to seal the deal for the Senegalese.
Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho though doesn’t want to let go of Ba after the seemingly forgotten forward made some valuable contributions to the Blues cause towards the end of this term. The former Newcastle star does not have bad returns for a squad player at Stamford Bridge, having netted 8 goals in 29 appearances, of which only 6 were starts. His eye for goal has made Mourinho change his mind and want to keep him in West London.
The Portuguese boss may now be willing to promise Ba a more important role in the side despite the imminent signing of Atletico Madrid star striker Diego Costa, but it remains to be seen whether the Senegal international would agree to stay on at the club.
