Besiktas hope to persuade Blues boss Jose Mourinho to allow Salah and Ake to leave Stamford Bridge on loan this month, with the side unsure whether the West London outfit will want to keep the duo as they compete for four trophies, or allow them regular playing-time elsewhere.
Ake is yet to make an appearance in the Premier League this season, while Salah has had a bit-part role since his £11m arrival from FC Basel in January last year.
The two sides have done business recently – when Demba Ba made the £6m switch to Istanbul in the summer – and will be hoping that further deals can be done this month as Slaven Bilić looks to strengthen his side.
