Arsenal striker Eduardo da Silva is reportedly subject to interest from both Aston Villa and Besiktas.
The 27-year-old Croatian joined the Gunners from Dinamo Zagreb in the summer of 2007 and quickly became a firm favourite with the Emirates faithful. But his progress was halted after he horrifically broke his leg under a challenge from Birmingham's Martin Taylor in February 2008.
But, since then, further injuries have restricted him to infrequent appearances. And, despite signing a long-term deal at Arsenal last December, the two-time Croatian player of the year could be on his way out of north London.
The arrival of Marouane Chamakh from Bordeaux has seen Eduardo drop down the pecking order and, according to the Daily Mail, Besiktas are willing to do battle with Aston Villa for his signature.
The Turkish club are reported to be in the process of preparing an £8 million raid, but Villa boss Martin O'Neil is not expected to give up easily as he looks to bolster his frontline.
Any potential move for the forward could be boosted if Villa decide to cash in on James Milner - with Manchester City waiting in the wings - after O'Neill admitted it would be "difficult" to keep hold of the England international.
