Besiktas are lining up a triple raid on the Premier League for Roman Pavlyuchenko, Yossi Benayoun and Louis Saha.
The Istanbul club's boss Mustafa Denizli is determined to strengthen his attacking options for next season's Champions League campaign after winning the Turkish Super League for the first time in six years.
His list of targets include 27-year-old Russia striker Roman Pavlyuchenko, who Tottenham Hotspur are prepared to offload after just one season in England. The former Spartak Moscow player has also been linked to Stuttgart and Roma.
An alternative for Besiktas would be Everton's former Manchester United marksman Louis Saha.
And Denizli will also test the water for Liverpool's Yossi Benayoun, the 29-year-old winger who has also been linked to Barcelona.
Besiktas will also battle Fulham, Aston Villa, Everton and West Ham United for Eidur Gudjohnsen, the versatile former Chelsea player who looks set to leave Barcelona this summer.
