Besiktas Have Four Premier League Strikers On Their Shopping List

Besiktas Have Four Premier League Strikers On Their Shopping List

Besiktas are on the hunt for a replacement for Cenk Tosun after he joined Everton in a £27 million move, and club officials have apparently been in London today as they look to fill the void left by their former talisman.

Tosun netted 64 goals for the Turkish outfit, including 14 in 24 this season - and it will inevitably be a difficult task to replace his goals.

The Premier League's best one-season wonders:

But they do have four Premier League strikers in mind that could be "coming to Besiktas", as per Dean Jones from Bleacher Report.

Leicester City's Kelechi Iheanacho and West Ham's Javier Hernandez have both been heavily linked with making the switch, having both struggled this season.

Iheanacho has scored just three goals after making a £25 million move from Manchester City and has struggled to nail down a starting spot.

Hernandez, meanwhile, was backed to have a prolific season at the London Stadium upon his return to the Premier League following a £16 million summer deal.

He had bagged 59 at Manchester United and 39 goals for Bayer Leverkusen but hasn't had a good time in-front of goal for the Hammers, netting just four goals in 20 games.

Iheanacho's Leicester teammate Islam Slimani is also on Besiktas' shopping list. The out-of-favour Algerian has attracted interest from a host of Premier League clubs but Şenol Güneş' side have also enquired about him.

The final man in the mix is Arsenal striker Danny Welbeck, who could find first-team opportunities even harder to come by if Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang joins the club in January.

Watch: Red Arse compilation:

A loan move to Besiktas, which would give the former United striker Champions League football and give him a better chance of an England recall, has been mooted - but there has been talk that Arsenal want him to stick around due to the sale of Theo Walcott to Everton.

Who would be the best fit for Besiktas?

Sound off in the comments.
