Besiktas hope to have a deal for Everton’s Dele Alli finalised so that he can be in the stands for their game against Fatih Karagumruk on Sunday.
The Turkish club are eager to complete a deal by the end of the week and it is understood the Toffees could be willing to let Alli leave — despite having joined the club only in January.
Whether Besiktas can pull off the transfer depends on how the deal is structured, with the Turkish club preferring an initial loan deal.

The potential deal moved a step closer to completion on Thursday night with the two clubs actively engaged in talks.
Alli joined Everton during the final hours of the January window in what was effectively a free transfer.
Everton, however, would owe Tottenham £10million if Alli plays 20 times for the Goodison Park club.
He has made 13 appearances so far — only one of them from the start — totaling just 363 minutes of football.
The 26-year-old fell down the pecking order at Tottenham Hotspur following the departure of Mauricio Pochettino in 2019.
