According to NTV Spor, Eto'o is the man that Besiktas want to spearhead their title push and a lucrative contract offer is being drawn up for the Cameroonian.

Eto'o is out of contract at Chelsea at the end of this season and would be available for Besiktas without a fee.


Besiktas are well advanced in their summer transfer planning and have also been linked with a number of other stars.

That is a list which includes the likes of Manchester City defender Joleon Lescott and Hamburg midfielder Rafael van der Vaart.
