Transfer Talk: Dele set to swap Toffees for Turkish delight at Besiktas
Besiktas are keen on bringing Everton attacker Dele Alli to Istanbul with the 26-year-old desperate for more regular playing time.
Alli joined the Toffees in January, but his short spell on Merseyside has been largely disappointing — the England international has failed to score in 13 Premier League appearances.
The MK Dons academy graduate spent his best years in North London with Tottenham, where he scored 67 times over a seven-year spell with the club.
Now, Alli could be set for a move away from the Premier League, with Turkish giants Besiktas prepared to offer him an exit route from Goodison Park.
According to The Guardian, the 16-time Super Lig champions are pushing for Alli, with the club open to either a loan or permanent deal.
The potential move is a testament to Alli's downfall, with Everton willing to say goodbye to one of their attackers despite being severely limited in that department.
With star man Richarlison leaving for Spurs in July and Dominic Calvert-Lewin sidelined, Salomon Rondon is the only remaining recoginsed No9 at Frank Lampard's disposal.
Chelsea target Anthony Gordon stepped in to lead the line in last Saturday's defeat at Aston Villa, with Alli handed just a nine-minute cameo.
