Arsenal forward Danny Welbeck is reportedly the subject of interest from Turkish side Besiktas, following their sale of Demba Ba.
Ba recently joined Shanghai Shenhua and Welbeck is seen as the ideal replacement for the former Chelsea and Newcastle man.
Welbeck only joined Arsenal last summer in a £16 million pound move from Manchester United but failed to find the back of the net as often as he would have hoped, scoring four goals in 25 league games.

Turkish newspaper Aksam, are reporting the Turkish clubs top brass believe they can sign the England international for a fee between €10-15m, as Arsenal themselves step up their bid to sign a new forward.
If Welbeck was to join the Turkish outfit, who finished third last season, he would be the fourth Premier League player to make the switch. Following in the footsteps of Lukas Podolski, who joined Galatasaray, and Robin van Persie and Nani, who signed for Fenerbahce.
It is likely Arsenal will reject any approach from Besiktas for the 24-year-old, who is seen as a resourceful player, who can play in a number of positions and help the side defensively.
However, Wenger will be hoping Welbeck can improve on his goal tally following his assertion that he was a goalscorer when he arrived at the Emirates.
The Gunners are believed to be in the market for a striker of their own having been linked to Robert Lewandowski and Karim Benzema, with club director, Lord Harris saying Arsenal have £200m in the bank to spend on new additions.
